Italian peace activist injured at Bil'in protest

Bethlehem - Ma'an - On the first anniversary of the decision of the Israeli Supreme court that the separation wall running through the village of Bil'in was illegal, residents and internationals gathered at the site of the ongoing construction for the wall for a protest.

The now weekly protests consistently call for an end to the construction of the separation wall on village lands. On Friday the protesters marched to where construction workers and troops installed razor wire to block the protest.

As marchers attempted to move the wire to march to the site of the wall, Israeli soldiers fired tear gas and sound bombs at the group. Dozens suffered from tear gas inhalation and an Italian woman was hit with a canister of tear gas.

When demonstrators reached the gate in the separation wall and tried to remove it, soldiers sprayed the group with water containing blue dye.
