Israeli Troops Attacks Women’s Protest, Dozens Wounded

Dozens of women were wounded on Saturday after the Israeli forces violently attacked a peaceful protest at the Qalandia Terminal north of Jerusalem, and fired gas bombs and rubber-coated metal bullets at them.

The women were holding a protest marking the Palestinian Women Day, and the International Women Day.

Eyewitnesses reported that the Israeli military attack was unprovoked, especially since the protesters were marching peacefully.

One of the wounded women is a member of a Swedish foundation; she suffered serious injuries as she was struck in the face with a gas bomb fired by the army, medical sources reported.'

  1. I thought today was supposed to be International women's day?

    Maybe they forgot about this.

    No doubt the people doing the firing were men.

    Men of today are such cowards to attack defenceless women. I really don't know what the world is coming to.


Thanks for your comment it is much appreciated.
