[ 26/06/2010 - 10:39 AM ]
The Israeli occupation forces (IOF) attacked different peaceful anti-wall marches on Friday in West Bank villages. Injuries and breathing problems were reported during the attacks.
In Bil'in village, as the protesters were marching towards the segregation wall, the IOF troops fired tear gas and stun grenades and rubber bullets at them, which led to the injury of one participant and caused dozens of suffocation cases.
The Israeli gunfire also caused fire in vast tracts of Palestinian agricultural lands in the village.
The protesters chanted slogans condemning the deportation policy pursued by Israel against the Palestinian people in Jerusalem and the West Bank.
For their part, the villagers of Ni'lin and foreign activists marched towards the apartheid wall in the village and erected a Palestinian flag on the wall in solidarity with the olive trees which Israeli troops set ablaze last week.
The protesters clashed with the troops after they aggressively attacked their march and fired grenades and rubber bullets at them.
The IOF troops also attacked similar anti-wall marches in Masarah village and Wadi Rahal area in Bethlehem, and Nabi Saleh village in Ramallah.
