Gaza Smokescreen

Another inventive protest by the great folks of the Popular Committee Against the Wall in the West Bank:

Palestinians have burned rubber tyres along the trail of the Israeli separation barrier in the West Bank in a symbolic protest against its ongoing construction under the smokescreen of the Gaza pullout.

Black smoke seen rising along the wall's path from the areas of Marda to Qalandia in the Central West Bank on Thursday was an "SOS to the world" to take action to stop Israel's annexation of their land and "imprisonment of the Palestinian people."

6 of the protestors, including two children, were injured when Israeli forces fired rubber bullets at them in the village of BilĂ­n.
