Two injured and dozens suffered the effects of tear gas inhalation on Friday as Israeli soldiers attacked the weekly nonviolent protest against the wall in the village of Bil’in in central West Bank.
As is the case every Friday since four years, villagers along with their Israel and international supporters marched from the village after the midday prayers.
As soon as the villages arrived at the gate of the wall separating the villagers from their lands Israeli troops stationed there fire tear gas.
This week protesters demanded the release of Adeeb Abu Rahmah, a village protest organizer. Abu Rahmah was kidnapped the Israeli military four month ago. The military accused him of inciting violence. Protesters marched on Friday wearing masks of Adeeb, declaring “We are all Adeeb Abu Rahmah”.
