This Friday, as every Friday, people from the village of Bil’in marched against the Apartheid Wall after prayers.
***image2***Around 200 protesters took part in the demonstration, marching to their land isolated by the Wall carrying the Palestinian flag, placards and banners for national unity.
As the villagers approached the Wall, Occupation forces attacked them, preventing them from crossing to their land on the other side. The Occupiers fired tear gas, sound bombs and rubber bullets until the demonstration appeared to disperse.
However, protesters responded from new positions, throwing stones. The Occupation forces then escalated their attack, randomly firing rubber bullets and filling the streets of the village with tear gas.
Two youths from the village sustained injured from rubber bullets: Muhammad Mustafa al Khatib and Fadi Mustafa Omar.
