The soldiers withdrew after Rabbis for Human Rights’ field worker contacted the DCO (local authorities of the Israeli army in charge of contact with the PA). The soldiers apparently denied any use of riot control measures against the Palestinians, but our documentation shows clouds of tear gas on the scene as well as shells of tear gas canisters.
Area B is under the civil control of the Palestinians & all matters of planning there are under the authority of the Palestinians.
The incident occurred today, Sunday March 12th on the roads that connect the Palestinian village Turmus Ayya to its agricultural lands, not far from the Adi Ad illegal outpost.
