More than thirty citizens and journalists were wounded in the confrontations in Na"lin village west of Ramallah city on Tuesday between IOF troops and citizens angered over confiscation of their lands.
Eyewitnesses said that two journalists were among the wounded in addition to tens of locals and international sympathizers. They added that three of the wounded were in "serious conditions" and were carried to Ramallah government hospital.
They added that the soldiers detained more than ten young men and released eight of them later but took away two named Mohammed and Jamal Kenaan.
The village went on a large-scale commercial strike at noon Tuesday to protest the bulldozing of vast areas of their lands at the hands of the Israeli occupation authority to establish the separation wall between the village and the Palestinian lands occupied in 1948.
