Bil’in Villagers Protest Againt The Wall To Mark The Nakba

Three civilians were injured in the village of Bil’in, near the central West Bank city of Ramallah, as the villagers carried out their weekly anti-wall protest. As is the case every Friday since six years, international and Israeli supporters joined the villagers after the midday prayers and marched towards the wall.Upon arriving at the gate in the wall, soldiers stationed there fired tear gas and rubber-coated steel bullets at protesters wounding three of them. They received on-site medical treatment, as their wounds were minor. Dozen others were treated for tear gas inhalation.

The villagers of Bi’lin carried a large key with a number on it to mark 63 years of dispossession. They also rode a cart pulled by a donkey to resemble the return to their land from the refuge.

International and Israeli supporters managed to join the protest despite of the tight siege Israel imposed on the village to prevent them from joining the protests.
