Israeli forces beat and tear gas Palestinian runners after East Jerusalem race

Israeli police confronted runners after a race between Sheikh Jarrah and Silwan with rubber-coated steel bullets, sound bombs and batons.

At least 23 people were reported to have sustained injuries following a crackdown by Israeli forces on participants in a race that took place in occupied East Jerusalem on Friday.

Runners had raced for 3.5km between the East Jerusalem neighbourhoods of Sheikh Jarrah and Silwan in solidarity with the scores of Palestinians facing forced expulsion from their homes in these areas.

All those who took part in the run wore white t-shirts inscribed with the number 7850, which activists say is the number of Palestinians under threat of forcible displacement in Jerusalem.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Unfrigging believable; what utter thugs do this to absolutely non-violent protestors?!?

And to the current disjunct and dysfunctional Israeli government; it is things like this which absolutely destroy your alleged "victimhood"; you can no longer control the narrative here, and the Palestinians and people living in other parts of the Middle East, understand this very clearly.
