The march left beit awwa 100 strong. Palestinians, internationals and israelis*.
men women and children. They were intercepted by IDF infantry which tried to
stop the march at gun point. an officer informed indymedia that "this is for
your protection i don't want you to be hurt by the heavy machinery"
It must also have been out of concern that the soldiers used stun grenades
and tear gas to try to stop the march.

Undeterred, the march continued to the work site near sikka where the crowed
of demonstrators grew to about 200.
When the demonstrators reached the work site, the worked stopped
and did not resume for about 1 hour.

Confrontation with the army and border police() developed whenthey attempted
to arrest people. In the end no arrests were made but several palestinians
were injured. One injury was medium.
An israeli women was also injured by the plastic casing of a stun grenade
exploded near her.

After some of the demonstrators went back work resumed briefly but was topped
again when demonstrators placed themselves in front of the bulldozers.

After about 45 minutes of blocking the bulldozers large forces of civilian
police and riot police arrived at which point the demonstrators decided to
retreat rather than risk more injury and arrests.
The lack of arrest and more serious injury leaves the demonstrators
in a good position to intensify the resistance to the construction of
the wall in the area.
