Woman injured in West Bank protest returns home

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - A Louisville woman returned home after being injured while taking part in a West Bank protest.

Loved ones and supporters were waiting with signs at Louisville International Airport for Sonja De Vries.

De Vries said an Israeli soldier struck her and injured her knee while she and a group of other people were participating in a march in the occupied West Bank.

De Vries explained, "The last time I was there it was a peaceful protest and they used rubber bullitts concussion bombs and tear gas, so really they were mild with us probably because there were so many internations and a couple people got hurt."

De Vries said she was going to get her knee checked out by a doctor on Monday.
