In its Weekly Report On Israeli Human Rights Violations in the Occupied Palestinian Territories for the week of 27 March - 02 April 2014, the Palestinian Center for Human Rights (PCHR) found that Israeli forces wounded 7 Palestinian civilians, including 3 children, in the West Bank and Gaza Strip, with one civilian sustaining a bullet wound in the West Bank, as a settler opened fire at him. Israeli navy forces fired at Palestinian fishing boats in the sea 4 times.

Israeli attacks in the West Bank:

In the West Bank, Israeli forces used excessive force against peaceful demonstrations organised by Palestinian civilians, international and Israeli human rights defenders in protest at the construction of the annexation wall and settlement activities in the West Bank. As a result, dozens of civilians suffered tear gas inhalation and others sustained bruises as they were beaten by Israeli soldiers.

In the same context, 6 civilians, including 3 children, were wounded during other peaceful demonstrations at the western entrance of Selwad village, northeast of Ramallah; Beit Ommar village, north of Hebron; and Kofur Qaddoum village, northeast of Qalqilya. In addition, 3 women suffered tear gas inhalation during a demonstration at the southern entrance of al-Jalazoun refugee camp, north of Ramallah, on 28 March 2014.

On the same day, an 11-year-old child sustained a bullet wound to the right leg while he was standing in front of his house in Beit Ommar village, north of Hebron, and was then abducted by Israeli soldiers from his family house.

Israeli forces conducted 68 incursions into Palestinian communities in the West Bank. 23 Palestinian civilians were abducted. Israeli forces established dozens of checkpoints in the West Bank. At least 8 Palestinian civilians, including two children, were abducted at checkpoints in the West Bank.

During the reporting period, Israeli forces conducted at least 68 military incursions into Palestinian communities in the West Bank. During these incursions, Israeli forces abducted at least 23 Palestinians.

On 28 March 2014, Israeli forces maltreated Yusef 'Allami (52) when they raided his house near Beit Ommar village, north of Hebron. They searched the house and threatened to demolish his house as it was built without a license.

On the same day, Israeli forces maltreated Shadi Seder (31) when they raided his house in Hebron's Old Town. They sprayed pepper spray into his face and his mother's. Israeli forces also abducted the aforementioned person, his brother and neighbour.

Israeli attacks on the Gaza Strip:

In the Gaza Strip, on 27 March 2014, Israeli forces stationed along the border fence, east of Beit Hanoun town in the northern Gaza Strip, fired live ammunition and gas canisters at hundreds of Palestinian civilians who organized demonstrations to mark the Land Day. As a result, a 37-year-old journalist and a 20-year-old civilian suffered tear gas inhalation.
