Local sources reported that a number of Palestinian children were injured during a non violent protest against the illegal wall in Al Ma'sara village near by the West Bank city of Bethlehem on Friday midday. A number of internationals, Israeli peace activists and Palestinian villagers marched in a nonviolent protest against the annexation wall being built on the village lands and in solidarity with the people of Nil'in village south of the West Bank city of Ramallah. Local sources reported that the Israeli army stopped the protest by violently attacking the protesters. Among them were children who were injured by the Israeli troops. On July 9th 2004, the International Court of Justice in The Hague declared that the construction of an Israeli wall in the West Bank was illegal, yet construction of the wall continues to this day.
