Activists and demonstrators held peaceful demonstrations and activities on Friday in Ain Al-Baida village in the Massafer Yatta area of the southern Hebron hills, protesting the ongoing eviction orders that threaten eight Palestinian communities which are home to around 2,400 People. Israeli occupation forces and settlers suppressed the activities and attacked the demonstrators.
This just happened near my home: Settlers brutally attacked and injured two peace activists. They came here to protest against the occupation’s ongoing policy to ethnically cleanse Masafer Yatta of Palestinians. In the face of racism and violence, there’s bravery and hope. pic.twitter.com/6Ysp9a65QX
