Young Palestinian shot in head with rubber-coated bullet, dozens sick from wastewarer and tear gas in Bil'in

Ramallah - Ma'an - Mohammed Jaber Daraghameh was shot in the head with a metal bullet Friday as he participated in a protest march in the village of Bil'in and was transferred to Ash-Sheikh Zayed Hospital in Ramallah for treatment.

Several others choked on tear gas after Israeli forces attacked marchers as they neared the site of the construction of the separation wall, and attempted to cross into ancestral village lands.

Many members of the Central Committee of the Popular Struggle Front participated in the demonstrators in solidarity with the villagers.

The demonstrators managed to reach the wall and walked along its route chanting slogans against the Israeli soldiers. Shortly after protesters reached the wall, clashes erupted between the demonstrators and Israeli soldiers and soldiers fired rubber-coated metal bullets and tear gas at the demonstrators.

The soldiers sprayed the demonstrators with wastewater; many fainted and vomited due to the noxious smell and chemicals.
