Israeli Police Injure 10 in Golan Heights

12/07/2010 Hundreds of angry protesters in the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights clashed with Israeli police who fired tear gas injuring at least 10 people.

The clashes in the town of Majd al-Shams broke out on Sunday when Israeli police attempted to search a restaurant. Locals surrounded the building trapping some 10 policemen inside for several hours.

Witnesses said that police called in reinforcements who fired tear gas to disperse the crowd. Israeli media reported that at least 10 locals were hurt during the clashes.

Israel has occupied Syria's strategic Golan Heights plateau since 1967 six-day war and annexed it in 1981. Damascus has repeatedly demanded its return as a non-negotiable condition for peace, which Israel has rejected.
