Closing the main entrance of the village of Esawyeh…clashes in Ras Al-Amoud and Al-Tur
October 23, 2014

The Israeli authorities closed the main entrance of the village of Esawyeh on Thursday morning with cement blocks which led to the breakout of clashes between the residents and Israeli forces that were stationed in the area. The forces have been deliberately closing the main entrance of the village lately as a punishment to the residents after the breakout of any clashes in the village. The forces used on Thursday tear gas grenades and heavily fired them towards the citizens that were trying to enter or leave the village heading to work and school and led to the suffocation of many of them. Violent clashes also broke out in the neighborhood of Ras Al-Amoud and one young man was injured with a rubber bullet in his leg. Clashes also broke out in Al-Tur.
