Committee: 2 injured at West Bank protest

RAMALLAH (Ma’an) -- Two Palestinians were injured by tear gas canisters fired by Israeli forces at a protest in the West Bank on Friday, the popular committee said.

The rally in Ramallah village Billin was stopped by Israeli forces with rubber bullets, tear gas and sound grenades, the committee said.

Ahmad Abu Rahma, 18, was struck by a tear gas canister in his hand and Issa Abu Rahma, 40, was wounded in the leg, they reported, noting that dozens of others suffered tear gas inhalation.

An Israeli army spokeswoman said she was not familiar with any injuries at the protest.

Billin holds weekly demonstrations against the Israeli separation wall and settlement encroachment. Friday's rally was dedicated to celebration of the UN vote for Palestine to be a non-member state, and called on Palestinian political factions to implement a reconciliation deal.

In al-Masara village, near Bethlehem, protesters held signs reading "Warning! This is illegally occupied land. State of Palestine."

Activist Hassan Barjeyeh said the protest also called on President Mahmoud Abbas to urgently implement the reconciliation deal.

Another participant, Muath al-Laham, said they wanted to thank all the UN members that voted for Palestine on Thursday night.
