Photos by Haim Schwarczenberg: 8 November 2013

The weekly Friday demonstration against Israeli occupation and land theft commemorated former PLO leader Yasser Arafat, whose remained were exhumed and analyzed. Autopsy results published this week indicated chairman Arafat died of unnatural causes, presumably polonium poisoning. Villagers held photos of the former chairman to protest his assassination. The villagers were joined by Israeli and international solidarity activists. As demonstrators proceeded down a street towards the locked gate near the military watch tower, IOF soldiers dispersed the march with tear gas canisters and rubber-coated steel bullets.
