Today at approximately 12:30pm Israeli forces put down a Gaza protest at Damascus Gate in Jerusalem. Several youths were abducted by the occupying forces, and women were shoved to the ground by soldiers and border police.

The first video is filmed looking down on Damascus Gate from the outside, and shows a number of youths being attacked and taken away by Israeli forces.

I filmed the following video moments later on Sultan Suleiman Street immediately north of the gate, and it shows a Palestinian being taken away by the Israeli occupiers.

    OMG, I had forgotten you were still out there till I happened to ask your dad just today.

    First off, respect for having the courage to go out to Palestine despite knowing how little concern the Israeli occupying forces have for the lives of Palestinians or foreigners.

    Second off, Are You Out of Your Mind ?! For exactly the same reason as above ! I am hesitant to take a trick to Stickypan to visit your Gran who has been out there a couple of months.. and that’s a ‘safe’ place relative to Occupied Palestine.

    Third point – i was surprised to see so many other people obviously making recordings of the proceedings without being beaten up or shot by the Israelis. Have things changed then ? And they have not disabled internet access to prevent these reports coming out ?

    Typo – I meant to write ‘take a trip’ (not trick).
