07/08/14: Zwata village attacked by the Israeli Army

Late on Wednesday evening, through to the early hours of Thursday morning 7 jeeps invaded the village of Zwata. Firing sound bombs and volleys of tear gas at the sleeping village 6 villagers were injured from the tear gas and 4 from the sound bombs as they bravely tried to defend the village against the attack.

The Army attempted to attack homes and kidnap villagers, but with the youth’s brave defense they were unsuccessful.

Villages and cities across the West Bank area of Palestine are regularly invaded and Palestinians kidnapped and held in Israeli Apartheid prisons. SFP implores those that have taken to the streets in the last few weeks in support of Palestine, and specifically the Gaza area, to stay on the streets until all of Palestine is free and the refugees are able to return home.

N.B. SFP activists present during the invasion supplied this report.
