Israeli soldiers attacked, Friday, the weekly nonviolent procession against the illegal annexation wall and colonies in Bil’in village, west of the central West Bank city of Ramallah.
The protesters marched from the center of the village, carrying Palestinian flags, and chanting for liberation, independence, the release of all detainees and the Right of Return to all refugees.
They called for ongoing popular resistance against the illegal Israeli colonialist occupation and policies in Palestine, and for ensuring the implementation of all United Nations and Security Council resolutions, affirming the legitimate rights of the Palestinian people.
Many Israeli and international peace activists participated in the procession, and marched with the Palestinians in the village.
The Popular Committee against the Annexation Wall and Colonies in Bil’in said the soldiers fired many gas bombs and concussion grenades at the nonviolent protesters, just as they arrived near the Annexation Wall gate in Abu Lemon area.
It added that some protesters managed to raise the Palestinian flag on the gate, and several others banged on it with stones.
Medical sources said several protesters suffered the effects of teargas inhalation, and received the needed treatment.
