Many injured in Beit El protest on 15th May in commemoration of the Nakba
May 16, 2018

Palestinians marched from Arafat square in Ramallah at 11am this morning 15th May to the DCO checkpoint near the illegal settlement of Beit El to confront Israeli forces. At around 12PM there were over 1000 protestors. Israeli forces fired excessive amounts of rubber coated steel bullets, tear gas, sponge tipped batons and reportedly also used live ammunition. Palestinian medics rushed with stretchers to the injured as so many were injured. At one point a Palestinian was shot with a rubber coated steel bullet in the leg, a medic ran to treat him but was also targeted by Israeli forces with a rubber coated steel bullet. Israeli forces deployed a drone several times to drop tear gas on the demonstrators. The sounds of ambulances and scenes of them rushing up and down the road never stopped throughout today’s demonstration in solidarity with Gaza and in remembrance of Al Nakba.

Medics gather at Beit El protest to treat the wounded. Medics were also wounded by Israeli weapons.

Protesters march towards Beit El.

Thank you for keeping us informed on this situation, fly b. As the world becomes essentially smaller, I think the role of international law needs to increase. It infuriates me that we are acting as as accomplices to Israel, and subsidizing this travesty with our tax dollars.
