Israeli Troops Use Tear Gas Against Women Protesters | Russian Times (Video)

Israeli soldiers have been found using tear gas and smoke grenades against female protesters in an attempt to disperse them. One Swedish activist, from the International Solidarity Movement (ISM), was hurt when a gas canister scraped her arm and singed her hair. She was treated by Palestinian paramedics at the scene. Dozens of Palestinian women along with international activists demonstrated in northern Jerusalem, calling for an end to the Israeli occupation of the West bank. The Palestinian activists are inspired by the calls for democracy that toppled autocratic leaders in Egypt and Tunisia.
