Ramallah – PNN – One Palestinian was injured and dozens were treated for tear gas inhalation after a confrontation with Israeli troops during the weekly march to protest the wall in the village of Bil’in.

When they reached the wall and tried to cross into the Palestinian land on the other side, the Israeli military shot rubber bullets, sound bombs, and tear gas canisters at them. Samir Barnat, 34, was injured when a tear gas canister exploded on his shoulder.
The march, organized by the Popular Committee Against the Wall and Settlements, was joined by Sten Rinet, a Norwegian member of parliament, and Toron Hovik, a member of the Norwegian worker’s party, as well as Bil’in villagers and dozens of Israeli and international peace activists.
