Dozens choke in Bil'in as Israeli soldiers fire teargas at demonstrators

Oct. 10, 2008 4:48 P.M. (Updated: Oct. 10, 2008 4:48 P.M.)
Bethlehem - Ma'an - Dozens choked on teargas at a Bil'in demonstration against the Israeli separation wall on Friday, participants said.

Israeli activists joined the Palestinian protesters "in solidarity with the villagers," especially farmers during their harvest season.

Demonstrators toured the streets, condemning Israel's construction of the barrier. Soldiers reportedly stopped the protestors as they reached the wall of the gate and farmers attempted to cross toward their land to collect olives.

Troops launched tear gas and percussion grenades at the demonstrators, leading to dozens of inhalation injuries.
