Wall Protest: Israeli Suffers Brain Hemorrhage


Israeli suffering brain hemorrhage due to injury during Anti-Wall Protest

Israeli activist, Jonathan Pollack, was hit in the head by a tear gas canister shot from an M-16 when Israeli soldiers fired at an anti-Wall demonstration in the Ramallah region village of Bil'in. He was hospitalized in Tel Hashomer hospital in Tel Aviv, received internal and external stitches and diagnosed to be suffering from a hemorrhage in the brain. His medical situation is currently stable and he is conscience.

One hundred protesters gathered in front of the Israeli Ministry of Defense this evening protesting the tactics the Israeli military uses in its attempts to silence dissent against the Wall. The village of Bil'in has continued it's resistance to the Wall, which will effectively confiscate fifty percent of their agricultural land, despite nightly raids, harassment and arrest campaigns by the Israeli military conducted against the village. ISM (The International Solidarity Movement) is currently maintaining a presence in Bil'in to document and report human rights abuses.

Despite Israeli claims that the Wall is intended to safeguard the security of its citizens the route of the Wall near Bil'in has been specifically designed to incorporate the current construction of the settlement of Menora in addition to the existing settlement of Kiryat Sefer.
