Ramallah - Ma'an - Four internationals and a Palestinian child were among those injured in the Bi'lin protest on Friday afternoon.

This week's protest was staged as a sports day that included dozens of children's soccer teams, which came to play on the Bi'lin village field.

The day was organized by the Popular Campaign Against the Wall, and the village sports clubs under the slogan of "no for the wall, no for the construction of the settlement."

A delegation of supporters from the group "the generations of Palestine" visited the village for the sports day, and watched a movie on the village's experiment with popular struggle. Members of the Popular Committee presented a full explanation of the project of the village, then took the visitors to the site of the wall, which prevents local farmers from reaching their land.

Israeli troops attacked the protesters by shooting tear gas canisters, rubber-coated steel bullets, sound grenades and water polluted with animal manure and chemicals, preventing them from reaching the wall.

Fifteen-year-old Amjad Abu Rahmah and four international activists were moderately injured after being hit with rubber coated steel bullets.
