IOF attack anti- settlement protest in Silwan

Israeli occupation forces quelled today a group of nonviolent Palestinian protesters who were demonstrating in the occupied Jerusalem neighborhood of Silwan against the unjust Israeli policy of home demolitions targeting the native Palestinian population.

Israeli occupation police officers fired rubber-coated rounds and stun grenades at the protesters and dispersed them, according to local sources. No injuries were reported.

The vigil was held in front of the house of Mr. Nidal Rajabi, a Palestinian house owner who was recently notified by the all-Israeli municipality of the city of an order to demolish his home, under the pretext of lacking an Israeli construction permit.
