Thursday at Salfit. In a demonstration against the building of the apartheid
wall, 8 Palestinians were injured by the Israeli army attack. Two Israelis
and one international activist were arrested.
That morning, hundreds of inhabitants of Salfit marched in demonstration
against the building of the apartheid wall on their agricultural lands.

reach the lands on which the construction work is done, the Israeli
occupation forces attacked the demonstration with tear gas and shock
grenades and rubber coated bullets.

Tens were hurt by the the army attack. Five were hurt seriously from
tear gas and three more were brutally hit when the army pretend they
want to arrest them, but were let go after one of them lost consciousness
and the other two needed medical treatment.

Two Israelis were arrested during the demonstration on the charge
of entering closed military zone. The international activists which
documented the army attack was arrested too and her camera was

The arrested were taken to Ariel settlement town police station
to stay there the night and be brought next morning to court.
* The escalation of the resistance along the route of
the apartheid wall/fence worry the Israeli occupation
authorities. They are especially bothered by the presence
of the Israelis in the demos as it force them to use
milder methods of suppression. The usual routine is to use
rubber coated bullets only when the Israelis are not present.
