RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- A German activist was reportedly injured by Israeli forces on Friday, as soldiers suppressed a weekly march in the village of Bilin, west of Ramallah in the central occupied West Bank.

Official Palestinian Authority (PA)-owned Wafa news agency reported that Palestinian, Israeli and international activists participated in the village’s weekly march against illegal Israeli settlements and Israel’s separation wall-- built on lands belonging to Bilin.

Activists raised Palestinian flags and chanted slogans calling for unity and resistance to the Israeli occupation.

Israeli forces reportedly flew a surveillance drone overhead the area that took photos of the protest, triggering clashes with protesters.

Israeli forces began opening fire on protestors, injuring a 26-year-old German activist with a rubber-coated steel bullet in the back.

Bilin is one of the most active Palestinian villages in peaceful organized opposition against Israeli policies, as residents have protested every Friday for 11 consecutive years, and have often been met with tear gas, rubber-coated steel bullets, and stun grenades from Israeli forces.
