Soldiers Assault Nonviolent Protesters Near Ramallah
Three Palestinians Kidnapped
Saturday Evening [November 30, 2013] Israeli soldiers attacked dozens of nonviolent Palestinian and international peace activists protesting near the Beit El illegal settlement, north of the central West Bank city of Ramallah, kidnapping three. The protest was held against the Israeli “Prawer-Begin” Negev displacement plan.
The attack took place after activists tried to stop a group of Israeli settlers from blockading the Ramallah-Jalazoun road and throwing rocks at Palestinian cars driving in the area. Dozens of Israeli soldiers were deployed in the area, violently assaulting both residents and peace activists. Soldiers fired gas bombs, concussion grenades, and rubber-coated metal bullets, an issue which led to clashes between local youth and the soldiers.
