On Friday, 29th June, two Palestinians were injured, Ahmad Bornat, 18, who was shot in his leg by a rubber bullet and Abdallah Yaseen, 19, who was hit by a gas canister in his back and dozens of Palestinians and peace activists from foreign countries suffered from suffocation due to poison gas inhalation in the weekly march organized by the Popular Committee Against the Wall in Bil'in.
A delegation from the United States and European Union, a foreign group from different countries came under a program that is known as "travel & knowledge program", the people of Bil'in and Israeli and foreign peace activists participated in this march.
The march began after Friday prayers from the center of the village and took place at the land that was liberated. Participants raised Palestinian flags and chanted slogans calling for national unity, the occupation to be dissolved, the destruction of the apartheid wall and the release of the prisoners.
Upon the arrival participants at Abu Lemon managed to break through the barbed wire, clashes erupted between the participants and Israeli soldiers. The soldiers behind the concrete wall started shooting rubber bullets, stun grenades, tear gas and waste water mixed with chemicals toward the participants, while the participants throw stones and empty bottles. Israeli soldiers deliberately threw tear gas canisters toward the dry lands and the olive groves, which led to huge fires in the field and neighboring areas.
