Is­raeli cops ‘at­tack Cosatu mis­sion’

Weekend Argus (Saturday Edition) - - NEWS -

A SOUTH African del­e­ga­tion to Pales­tine was at­tacked by Is­raeli po­lice yes­ter­day, the Congress of SA Trade Unions said.

“Mem­bers of a South African tri­par­tite Al­liance del­e­ga­tion cur­rently vis­it­ing Pales­tine have been at­tacked with tear gas and “sound bombs” and shoved around by Is­raeli po­lice in Ramallah,” said Cosatu spokesman Pa­trick Craven.

“Other than the ef­fects of tear gas, painful ears and small bruises, we are fine,” mis­sion leader Zanele Mate­bula.

This was just a small taste of the bru­tal­ity that “rained down” on the peo­ple of Pales­tine on a daily ba­sis, Craven said.
