RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- One person was injured on Friday as Israeli military forces dispersed a weekly Friday demonstration by villagers in Bilin, locals said.

Dozens of Palestinian, Israeli and international activists planted olive trees near the Israeli separation wall and placed empty tear gas canisters under existing trees.

Demonstrators also raised Palestinian flags and chanted songs for political unity, and in support of Palestinian prisoners.

Israeli forces used pepper spray to disperse the demonstrators, injuring Wael Burnat, 34. He received medical treatment at the scene.
