Dozens of nonviolent protests suffered effects of gas inhalation in the weekly nonviolent anti-wall protest in the village of N’ilin near the West Bank city of Ramallah on Friday.The villagers of N’ilin marched Friday in support of the Palestinian bid for full UN membership.

The marchers also chanted slogans condemning the speech made by the US President Barack Obama at the United Nations’ General Assembly meeting on Wednesday, accusing him of ignoring 60 years of the suffering of the Palestinian people.

As protesters arrived at the metal gate of the wall, Israeli troops fired a number of gas and sound bombs which cause dozens to choke.
