RAMALLAH, Sep. 24, 2010 (Xinhua News Agency) -- Four Palestinians were injured and dozens inhaled tear gas during clashes between Palestinian anti-settlement demonstrators and Israeli soldiers, west of Ramallah city, unnamed medical sources in Ramallah said.

Dozens of Palestinians backed by foreign and Israeli peace activists organized weekly protests in the village of Bel'ien, west of Ramallah against the Jewish settlement and the separation wall that Israel builds on the West Bank territories, according to witnesses.

Witnesses said protestors, chanting slogans against Israel, threw stones at the Israeli soldiers who fired rubber bullets and tear gas canisters.

According to the Ramallah medical sources, the four were moderately wounded by rubber bullets, while dozens were treated for inhaling tear gas.

Similar clashes erupted near Bethlehem, according to the Popular Committee against the Wall and Settlement.

The Palestinians organize what they call "peaceful weekly protests" against the separation wall and the Jewish settlement in the Palestinian territories, which has gained official support from the Palestinian National Authority (PNA).

  • Report: Dems planted NJ tea-party House candidate Oct 08, 2021 10:33 PM

    • MOUNT LAUREL, N.J. - A New Jersey Republican congressional candidate criticized his Democratic opponent Friday amid mounting evidence that Democratic officials planted a tea-party candidate in the race to siphon off conservative votes.
    • He spoke at a news conference Friday as Adler, a first-term Democratic lawmaker, and his campaign remained mum about a report in the Courier-Post of Cherry Hill in which Democratic operatives speaking on the condition of anonymity confirmed what Republicans have believed for months: That tea-party candidate Peter DeStefano was put on the ballot by Democrats.
    • Tea party organizations, which have denounced DeStefano since he entered the race in June, called on him Friday to quit.
      • 9/11 link to militant in Europe terror alert Oct 08, 2021 10:33 PM

        • HAMBURG, Germany - The Islamic militant whose disclosures under U.S. interrogation in Afghanistan triggered Europe's terror alert is an old friend of a man convicted in the 9/11 attacks and, as the strikes were being planned, frequented the same mosque where the Hamburg-based plotters often met, officials say.
        • Hamburg security officials in August shuttered the Taiba mosque, known until two years ago as al-Quds, because of fears it was becoming a magnet for homegrown extremists who, unlike foreigners, could not be expelled from the country.
        • Ahmad Wali Siddiqui, a 36-year-old German of Afghan descent arrested by the U.S. military in July in Afghanistan, has emerged as the latest link between Germany and al-Qaida's worldwide terror campaign.
          • Hoping to cut House losses, Dems try for firewall Oct 08, 2021 10:33 PM

            • WASHINGTON - Struggling to build a firewall against a Republican takeover, congressional Democrats are pouring money into roughly two dozen tight races around the country in the campaign's closing weeks while pulling it back from others where their chances seem slimmer.
            • With polls showing Republicans increasingly well-positioned to seize control of the House, the Democrats are planning TV ad blitzes to shore up their best-positioned incumbents and a handful of challengers in races they believe they can still win.
            • At stake is control of the House - where Democrats hold 255 seats, Republicans 178, and there are two vacancies - and the power to press or block key elements of President Barack Obama's agenda midway through his term.
              • National security shuffle: Jones out, Donilon in Oct 08, 2021 10:33 PM

                • WASHINGTON - Gen. James Jones, the gruff-talking military man President Barack Obama drafted as his national security adviser, announced Friday he was quitting after a tenure marked by ambitious foreign policy changes and undercurrents of corrosive turf battles.
                • Jones will be replaced by his chief deputy, Tom Donilon, a former Democratic political operative and lobbyist who in many ways is already the day-to-day leader of the White House national security operation.
                • The move deepens a season of White House turnover near the midpoint of Obama's term, with White House chief of staff Rahm Emanuel departing last week, chief economic adviser Lawrence Summers leaving by year's end and other changes expected before long.
                  • Bank of America stops US foreclosures for review Oct 08, 2021 10:33 PM

                    • WASHINGTON - Bank of America on Friday halted foreclosures on homes across the country so it could review paperwork in tens of thousands of cases for flaws, expanding a crisis at a perilous time for the housing market.
                    • Bank of America, the largest U.S. bank, had said a week earlier it would stop foreclosures in the 23 states where the process must be approved by a judge.
                    • Bank of America's nationwide halt will apply to homes that the bank is taking back itself and those for which it has transferred the papers to mortgage buyers Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac.
