A number of journalists and foreigner activists were wounded by Israeli occupation forces (IOF) during their protest, closing the entrance of Adam illegal settlement near Ramallah on Thursday.
The protest meant to commemorate the first annual anniversary of martyr Mohammed Abu Khdeir (16) who was kidnapped and burnt alive by settlers from the Adam settlement, after the Fajir (dawn) prayers, near Jaba’ village north-east Jerusalem.
PNN reporter said that the group of journalists and human-rights defenders have closed down the entrance of the settlement, while Israeli forces opened fire on them, wounding some. Soldiers have also savagely beaten the participants, using pepper spray and sound grenades.
The protest was coordinated by the popular struggle coordination committee, and the PLO movement in Jerusalem.
IOF have closed the Jaba’ checkpoint for people travelling from Ramallah towards the south.
