The villagers of Ni’lin, together with international supporters, marched after Friday prayers to their confiscated land where Israel is building the wall. Abu Amira, member of the Popular Committee Against the Wall and settlements in the village said some of the protestors wore the national dresses of the United Arab Emirates and waved Emirati flags, in a sign of gratitude to the Arab state for its support to the Palestinian people.

Protestors also chanted slogans demanding Israel to remove the Israeli settlements from the West Bank saying that all of these settlements are illegal.

Abu Amira added that Israeli troops fired a number of tear gas canisters at the protesters causing dozens of them to choke and few others to faint.
