Dozens of peace activists today suffocated after inhaling tear gas fired by Israeli occupation forces during a march opposed to Israeli government plans to dislodge hundreds of Palestinian residents of Masafer Yatta in the south of the West Bank and to demolish their communities, according to a local activist.

Every week since the Israeli High Court on May 4 gave the army the green light to demolish 12 communities in Masafer Yatta and to displace over 1000 of their residents as part of a plan to seize their lands and homes under the pretext of turning the area into a firing zone for military training, activists and supporters have been joining residents of Masafer Yatta in protesting plans to displace them and take over their lands.
