Israeli soldiers assaulted, Friday, dozens of Palestinian, Israeli and international peaceful protesters, holding the weekly procession against the Israeli Annexation Wall and colonies, in Bil’in village, near the central West Bank city of Ramallah.

Medical sources said the soldiers fired many gas bombs, concussion grenades and rubber-coated steel bullets, causing scores of protesters to suffer the effects of tear gas inhalation.

Israeli gas bombs also caused several olive trees, belonging to Rashid Mohammad Abu Rahma, to burn, before the residents and firefighters rushed to extinguish the fire.

The protesters marched from the center of the village carrying Palestinian and South African flags, celebrating Freedom Day (April 27), that marks the end of the apartheid regime in South Africa in 1994.
