Bil’in, A Village in Palestine

Palestine Monitor, 9 August 2010

A large crowd, including many Israeli and international activists, met this Friday for the weekly protest again the Israeli occupation, the wall and Israeli settlements in the village of Bil’in.

After Friday prayers the group marched and chanted through the village towards the wall where they were confronted by Israeli soldiers. After a brief stand off the crowd was forced to retreat through the use of tear gas and sound grenades. Israeli soldiers entered the village before the protestors reached the fence’s gate which separates Bil’in from its agricultural lands. Nobody was seriously hurt but many people suffered from tear gas inhalation. All pictures by Rob Stothard
