The villagers of Bil’in in the central West Bank staged on Friday their weekly protest against the Israeli wall built on their land.
Last Friday the demonstration organized by the local Popular Committee against the Wall was joined by dozens of members of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine supporters.
For every Friday for five years now a number of international and Israeli peace activists and people from Bil’in and neighboring villages took part in the demonstration.
After the Friday prayers people headed towards the gate of the wall separating villagers from their land.
When the demonstrators approached the wall the Israeli army fired sound bombs and tear gas and soldier also shot some rubber-coated metal bullets. Dozens were treated locally for the effects tear gas inhalation.
