10 Palestinians injured during Nakba commemoration protest

Ten Palestinians were injured today in Shufa village, south of Tulkarem, when Israeli forces attacked a demonstration on the occasion of the sixtieth anniversary of the Nakba.

Members of the National Committee to Commemorate the Nakba had gathered with grassroots organisations from Tulkarem to protest with the villagers against the ongoing attacks on Palestinian lives and land. The demonstrators chanted slogans against the Apartheid Wall and calling for the return of the Palestinian refugees as they moved to the roadblock at the entrance to the village.

The protestors then began to dismantle the roadblock, which has effectively closed the entrance to the village for the last four years. As they did so, the occupation forces attacked with teargas and rubber bullets. Ten were injured including a journalist.
