Israeli forces storm and destroy a protest village in Jenin just north of the West Bank. The camp was located next to the separation wall.

Palestinian activists set up the camp in the village of Anin and called it Asra meaning prisoners.

The move was aimed to express solidarity with the Palestinian prisoners held without charge or trial in Israeli prisons.

Clashes erupted as Israeli forces stormed the village and shot tear gas and rubber bullets at the Palestinians, which caused many injuries. Most of those injures were the result of tear gas inhalation. One Palestinian officer was also injured there.

Soldiers also arrested the brother of a hunger striker Yousef Yassin.

The Al-Asra protest village is the latest move by Palestinian activists to fight back Israeli land annexation.

Although Israel once again tried to destroy this peaceful initiative, the Palestinian non-violent resistance is gradually gaining momentum as activists continue to set up more protest tents throughout the West Bank.
