      Several wounded in Bil�in�s weekly anti-wall protest
      Friday March 07, 2008 18:47
      Dozens of the residents of Bil�in near Ramallah took to the streets on
      Friday in their weekly march protesting the confiscation of the village�s
      land and the illegal construction of the wall in the village.
      The residents were joined by a number of international and Israeli peace
      activists, in addition to a number of the supporters of Palestinian
      Democratic Federation Party (Fida), who are celebrating the eighteenth
      anniversary of the party.
      Protestors carried signs condemning the Israeli attacks on the Gaza Strip
      and others demanding the dismantling of the wall that is causing serious
      hardships to the farmers in the village.
      The protestors were stopped by the Israeli soldiers at the iron gate of the
      wall and were prevented to reach their confiscated land. Troops used tear
      gas and sound bombs to force the protestors to leave.
      Palestinian youth who were in the march responded by throwing rocks at the
      soldiers, who, in turn, fired rubber-coated steel bullets. As a result, a
      number of Palestinians and Internationals were treated for gas inhalation.
      Meanwhile an Israeli peace activist identified as Marina and a Palestinian
      protestor identified as Naji Shouha were wounded by the rubber-coated steel
      bullets; their wounds were described as moderate.
