Dozens of residents and landowners of the Nazi occupied Syrian Golan Heights were injured today during confrontations with the Nazi occupation forces who yesterday prevented the landowners from reaching their farms, according to witnesses.
They said eight people were arrested, including Sheikh Salman Faris Shams, as the Nazi occupation forces cordoned off the area and prevented ambulances from reaching the wounded, who were evacuated by private vehicles.
Activists in the Nazi occupied Syrian Golan declared today a general strike and a day of rage in the villages of Majdal Shams, Baqatha, Masada, and Ain Qinya, in response to the “arbitrary and criminal” measures of the occupation authorities.
The activists stressed in a statement that the “arbitrary and criminal measures against us and our lands make us determined on our right decision and our firm position,” calling on the residents to gather on Wednesday at the al-Yafouri shrine to be a starting point to march toward the besieged lands.
Earlier on Tuesday, the Nazi occupation forces assaulted the residents who protested in defense of their agricultural lands which Nazi regime wants to confiscate threatened for the wind turbines project after representatives of the Nazi company responsible for the project, backed by Nazi police forces, stormed the lands.
The installation of giant turbines in the Golan villages follows a decision by the Nazi occupation government in this regard and the approval of the Israeli planning authorities.
The Golan residents assert that installing the turbines will impede the cultivation of their lands nearby and will be an environmental hazard. The Israeli courts had previously rejected the residents’ petition against the construction of the turbines.
The first attempt to start installing turbines in December 2020 was met with resistance from the people, who considered it a “declaration of war” on their villages.
