Gaza5June7RAMALLAH (PNIC):-Dozens of Palestinians and foreign activists on Friday choked on teargas after Israeli Occupation Forces (IOF) suppressed the peaceful weekly march in Bilin town, near Ramallah, against settlement and the Separation Wall.

The march kicked off after Friday prayer in commemoration of the 13th anniversary of the assassination of the late president Yasser Arafat.

The coordinator of the Popular Committees against Settlement and the Separation Wall in Bilin, Abdulla Abu Rahma, pointed out that Israeli soldiers fired stun grenades and tear gas canisters towards the participants leading to breathing problems among many of them.

The Palestinians along with the activists managed to remove the metal gate of the wall which has been used by IOF soldiers to target the participants of the weekly march in the town. They also destroyed some tents used by the IOF to monitor the inhabitants and arrest the youth activists in the town.
