Member of the popular committee to resist the wall and settlement in the village Ala’a Al-Daras said that a massive march started from the village and headed to its agricultural land where the soldiers were bulldozing the area to prepare for construction of a section of the segregation wall.
He said that the soldiers assaulted the participants beating them with batons and rifle butts leading to a violent confrontation during which seven participants including five foreigners were arrested.
Daras explained that the IOF soldiers tried to foil the march by installing a road barrier at the entrance to the village.
