Dozens of Palestinians were treated for gas inhalation during a nonviolent protest against the wall in the village of Bil’in near the central West Bank city of Ramallah.Villagers along with their international and Israeli supporters marched against the construction of the wall on the village’s land. As soon as the marchers arrived near the gate, troops showered them with dozens of tear gas canisters causing dozens of them to choke.

This week’s protest is dedicated to commemorate the 22 second anniversary of the break out of the first Intifada in 1987.

Protestors called for the removal of the wall and the release of all Palestinian political prisoners form Israeli jails and also made a specific mention of the coordinator of the Popular Committee against the wall in the village Abdullah Abu Rahma who was kidnapped from his house by Israeli troops during the early hours of Friday.
