This comes after 30 protesters confronted police officers at the base’s entrance on Sunday evening,… leaving at least two with injuries following the clashes. Demonstrators have been blocking the transport of construction materials and equipment into the THAAD site for months. More clashes are expected Monday as the defense ministry has said more construction equipment will be brought in today,… after attempts to do so earlier this month failed.
(11.4.2018) About 150 local residents, as well as some civic activists who are against the deployment,… have occupied the road into the site for the past few months,… preventing trucks from going in and out. Some three thousand police officers have been deployed there starting from seven A.M. Thursday,… to try and ensure the trucks can access the site.
In Monday’s sit-in protest outside the gates of Camp Schwab in Henoko, over 300 people including lawmakers took part. The protest will last for six straight days through Saturday.
Forced out by riot police officers, protestors rallied, saying they would never allow the building of new bases in Henoko, either at sea or on land.
Among them, a 50-year-old local resident vowed to „never give up.“
Asked about the Russian statement, an Israeli military spokesman said he had no immediate comment.
Israel had attacked the T4 base near Homs twice in the past, destroying an Iranian drone control center and communications systems.
