Over 100 people demonstrated today in the West Bank city of Ramallah against the brutal attack by the state of Israel, in Gaza.
Demonstrations like this one are a daily occurrence as Palestinians living in West Bank witness their brother and sisters in Gaza being massacred on a hourly basis.
There are already 95 dead and nearly 800 injured, most of them elderly, women and children since the operation Pillar of Cloud began. The IDF has taken a more aggressive attitude at this stage, specially when dealing with demonstrations.
Today’s demonstration headed to one of the settlements nearby and once they got there, they were faced with live ammunition rounds being shot into the air and rubber bullets being shot directly at demonstrators. Many of the participants were women and children. At least 2 people got injured, which included Abdullah Abu Rahma, coordinator of the Bil’in Popular Committee Against the Wall.
Three days ago in another demonstration, Rushdi Tamimi aged 29, from Nabi Salh, got shot and died today in hospital.
