Israeli forces suppress weekly Bilin march

RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces suppressed the weekly Bilin march, west of Ramallah City in the central occupied West Bank, on Friday afternoon.

Israeli forces fired tear-gas bombs and stun grenades to suppress protesters, took footage of and chased protesters across the village.

The march was called for by the local popular resistance committee, and set off following Friday prayers at the village's mosque; locals, international and Israeli peace activists also took part in the march.

Protesters waved Palestinian flags and repeated slogans calling for Palestinian unity, resisting the Israeli occupation, releasing all Palestinian prisoners and for refugees to return to their homes of which they were displaced.

Protesters marched in memory of Hamdi Naasan, a father of four children, who was shot and killed by Israeli settlers in the al-Mughayyir village, east of the central West Bank of Ramallah, last Saturday.

Bilin is one of the most active Palestinian villages in peaceful organized opposition against Israeli policies, as residents have protested every Friday for 12 consecutive years, and have often been met with tear gas, rubber-coated steel bullets, and stun grenades from Israeli forces.
