At least 21 members of the group “Anarchists Against the Wall” were arrested today after blocking the entrance of a base of the Israeli Air Force in northern Tel Aviv to protest the bombing that the Zionist military have carried out since seven days ago in the Gaza Strip, which has left more than 400 Palestinians dead.
“From thousands of feet up…a pilot pushes a button and can ignore or forget that at the same time, is killing innocent people. We came to remind him, “said Ayala, a member of AAW. Según Haaretz reported, protesters covered their faces with white masks and fake blood, and lay down in the street pretending to be dead. EN-GB

‘Anarchists’ block entrance to IAF base in protest of Gaza strikes
Protestors say they only wanted to show pilots that their actions result in the killing of innocents.
Twenty-one members of the “Anarchists Against the Wall” group were arrested Friday morning after they blocked the entrance to the Sde Dov Israel Air Force base in North Tel Aviv.
The protestors, wearing white masks and covered in fake blood, laid on the street and played dead.
They said they were arrested after they left the road and were on the sidewalk.
Ayala, one of the protestors, said that the protest was meant to “show IAF pilots the results of their actions in Gaza. From thousands of feet in the air, a pilot who aims and presses a button can ignore, forget, or be unable to fathom that at that moment he killed innocent people. We came here to remind them of this.”
Also on Friday, clashes broke out between police and Israeli Arabs rock-throwers protesting the IAF raids in Gaza. In Tiberias on Thursday, some 15 youths burned tires and a Palestinian flag, in support of the operation in Gaza.
