ISRAELI ARMY ATTACKS NONVIOLENT PROTESTERS IN BIDDU
Two Palestinian community leaders arrested and dozens villagers injured.
Israeli media report about the Israeli anarchists involvement - two
of them anong the 15 injured to day. Police deny using rubber coated bullets
blamed the army for this act. The Palestinian nationnalists and the ISM people
- as printed below, try to hide the identity of Israeli activists who are
mostly from the Anarchists against the wall initiative.
"[Biddu, NW Jerusalem] Before 6am this morning, Israeli army
bulldozers started the construction of the wall in the outskirts of
Biddu village again. They were confronted by villagers,
Internationals and Israeli activists who tried to reach the worksite and
stop the work. Israeli soldiers opened fire directly at the line of
nonviolent protesters, shooting tear gas and concussion grenades and then
rubber-coated metal bullets. Dozens of Palestinians are reportedly injured
by eyewitnesses.

At 7:30am, the Israeli army arrested two Biddu community leaders,
Mohamed Mansour and Ibrahim Saleh Bedwan, as they were protesting
nonviolently the construction of the Wall through the village
farmlands. They have been taken away to an unknown location.

The protesters are now completely surrounded by over 80 soldiers who are
firing tear gas canisters, concussion grenades and rubber-coated metal
bullets, targeting upper parts of the body.

The Popular Committee against the Wall and the activists are now
trying to protect a house located at the outskirts of the village
which is about to be demolished by the Israeli army. Some villagers
are staying in the house to prevent its destruction while other are
staying outside and are currently targeted with tear gas canisters
and rubber-coated steel bullets.
