Clashes in Bilin following rally protesting offensive on Gaza

July 24, 2014 12:38 P.M. (Updated: July 26, 2014 1:03 A.M.)
RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces opened fire with tear gas grenades at Palestinian demonstrators in the village of Bilin near Ramallah protesting Israel's ongoing assault on Gaza on Thursday, causing dozens to suffer from excessive tear gas inhalation.

Israeli forces fired tear-gas grandes, rubber-coated steel bullets, and stun grenades at demonstrators, who rallied against the Israeli "massacre" in the Gaza Strip.

Demonstrators set off from the center of the village holding candles and Palestinian flags in honor of the dead, who number more than 730 in the last 16 days.

A local popular committee has also called for a rally under the banner "48 Thousand" that will set off from in front of al-Amari refugee camp near Ramallah at 9:30 p.m.
