Injuries as IOF brutally disbands anti-occupation rally in al-Khalil

Kharsa crossroads

Dozens of Palestinians sustained injuries Friday after the Israeli occupation forces (IOF) violently attacked a rally staged in response to the establishment of a military watchtower at Kharsa crossroads, in al-Khalil.

According to eyewitnesses, Israeli military patrols unleashed heavy spates of teargas canisters following Friday prayers performed by Palestinian protesters near an Israeli military watchtower in Kharsa, in al-Khalil’s town of Dura.

The peaceful Palestinian worshipers chanted slogans condemning the ceaseless Israeli violations.

Heavily-armed Israeli patrols showed up shortly afterwards and declared the area a closed military zone before the soldiers sprayed protesters with sewage in an attempt to disband them. The Israeli forces further cracked down on journalists and cameramen.
