Dozens were treated for the effects of tear gas inhalation on Friday as Israeli troops attacked the weekly protest against the wall in Bil’in village, central West Bank.
As is the case every Friday since four years, international and Israeli supporters joined the villagers after the midday prayers and headed towards the wall.
As protesters reached the gate of the wall separating the villagers from their lands, Israeli troops opened fire at them. Dozens were treated for the effects of tear gas and were treated by local medics at the location.
Among the groups that took part of this week protest was a delegation from ‘Follow the Women’ group. The “follow women” delegation, has participated in the demonstration by riding their bicycles toward the wall.
The delegation participation is part of a tour to Palestine, includes visiting the refugees camps, villages, cities, and the resistance and conflict points with the Israeli occupation.
