September 27, 2013

Violent clashes broke out on Friday night between the Palestinian young men and Israeli forces in Abu Dees and Bethany in support of Al-Aqsa Mosque. Witnesses said that young men initiated marches in the towns of Abu Dees and Bethany and chanted for Jerusalem and Al-Aqsa and refusing its desecration by the settlers. The march quickly turned into violent clashes with the Israeli forces that were deployed in the area who randomly fired gas bombs and rubber bullets to disperse the protesters in addition to spraying them with waste water which was also sprayed towards the residents and buildings. Witnesses added that dozens of young men were able to dig a hole using hand tools in the Separation Wall in the area of Kasbah Intersection which separates the city of Jerusalem from Abu Dees before the Israeli forces arrived and fired bombs to disperse the young men.
