JERUSALEM (Ma'an) -- Dozens of young Palestinians smashed a hole in Israel's separation wall near Abu Dis on Wednesday, as clashes broke out in the town for the second day in a row.
Popular resistance committee spokesman Hani Halbiya told Ma'an that youths made a 3-meter hole in part of the wall in protest against a house demolition in Abu Dis late Monday.
Workers spent several hours repairing the wall under the guard of Israeli security forces.
After military forces left the area, Palestinian youths returned to the wall and reopened the hole, Halbiya said. Israeli forces then raided Abu Dis and fired tear gas canisters and sound bombs. more
