The Israeli army dispersed the weekly nonviolent protest located in Bil'in village north of the West Bank city of Ramallah on Friday midday with gas, guns and grenades.
After the weekly Friday prayer, a group of internationals and peace activists marched a nonviolent protest in solidarity with the people of Bil'in village. The protest was against the illegal wall being built on the village lands.
The protestors were demonstrating against the Israeli killings of local civilians as well as the illegal closures and confiscation of lands and property. The protestors walked towards the wall with the intention of reaching the villagers lands behind it.
Israeli troops shot CS gas canisters, rubber-coated steel bullets, and concussion grenades at the protesters. A number of civilians reported suffering from gas inhalation. Additionally, a photographer was injured by the Israeli troops.
Last week an 11 year old boy, Ahmed Mousa, was killed after being shot by rubber-coated steel bullets after a nonviolent demonstration.
