(en) Palestine-Israel, Immatin, Joint demonstration against the fence suppressed violently

Date Thu, 14 Jul 2005 18:14:10 +0300

The village Immatin is another front of struggle against the separation fence.
This Thursday, the Israeli army suppressed viciously a joint demonstration of
Palestinians, internationals, Israeli anarchists and others. This morning 300
people started a march from Immatin situated between Imanuel and Kdumim in
protest of the separation fence that intend to annex to Israel the colonial
settlements of Imanuel and Kdumim which are situated about 15 kilometers from
the 1948/67 green line border. After marching of only 100 meters - still about
3 kilometers from the route of the fence, the army blocked the people with a
huge amount of tear gas. They ordered loudly the demonstrators to retreat....
though even those who wanted to could not because of the tear gas.

Rubber bullets were added to the tear gas including shooting on on palestinian
ambulance. At the first wave there were injured 16 three of them were hit by
tear gas grenades and canisters.

Later, the number of injured climbed to 31 - including an Israeli female
activist who were hit in the leg and taken by the Palestinian ambulance
to an hospital in Khalkilia, and press agency AP photographer who was hit
in the head with a rubber bullet and was treated at the site.

Three Israelis were arrested and taken to the Kdumim police station
and will probably accused in breaking of an army general about closed
zone.. or just for illegal assembly.

Few hours after the dispersing of the demonstration, the army invaded
the village with few battle cars, patrolling the village and shooting
rubber bullets and tear gas canisters, beating Palestinians, threatening
with live ammunition. The army forces even invaded to the girls school.

The tree Israelis will probably stay for the night in the Ariel
police station.
