Israeli occupation troops have wounded 15 Palestinians who tried to block bulldozers from destroying their farmland for the building of the controversial separation barrier in the West Bank.

According to Aljazeera's correspondent, the 15 were injured after occupation forces fired teargas and rubber bullets at them in the village of Baddu.

Three Palestinians were also arrested. Two Israeli soldiers were wounded by stone throwers.

Troops cut down dozens of olive trees to clear land for the separation barrier, sparking the clashes.
