NABLUS (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces dispersed a Palestinian demonstration against reckless driving by firing tear gas canisters at protesters south of Nablus on Saturday.

Local residents blocked a road in the town of Huwwara in the Northern West Bank as part of a demonstration against speeding drivers on the road, a major north-south thoroughfare used by Israeli settlers and local Palestinian residents.

The protest came in response to several incidents in which drivers hit and killed pedestrians on the road, including the most recent in which two children were killed by a speeding driver.

Israeli soldiers came to the scene of the protest and began launching tear gas canisters at the crowd in order to disperse them and open the road to vehicular traffic.

An Israeli army spokeswoman said that 200 Palestinians had gathered in the area and blocked the road, and as a result Israeli forces had used "riot dispersal means" against them.

The internationally recognized Palestinian territories of which the West Bank and East Jerusalem form a part have been occupied by the Israeli military since 1967.

Anywhere else in the world they would be hailed as decent people for protesting against unnecessary road death's. Not when Israel have anything to do with it. I'm starting to think these monsters go out of their way to live up to their reputation.

Sorry Ma'an,I had to laugh at your headline,LOL! It sounded like a protest against people driving recklessly under the influence of tear-gas!!lol!
Seriously,radical illegal Jewish-colonists don't see driving at high speeds(thru'occupied Palestinian lands)as reckless when Palestinian kids are victims,because those kids aren't Jews & are seen as road-kill i.e. cockroaches, squirrels,rabbits,rats,deer etc,while Jewish drivers get FULL immunity from prosecution that would be routine,globally!
