RAMALLAH, (PIC)– Weekly anti-wall demonstrations across the West Bank on Friday turned into moves of solidarity with Egyptian protesters.

“Despite difficult conditions we propelled the weekly march to intersect with the Egypt protests in rejection of injustice and demand for freedom,” said Ratib Abu Rahma, a member of Bil’in’s anti-wall committee.

The march reached the wall area amid vast popular and media presence, Abu Rahma said.

Israeli occupation troops tried to suppress the protest with gas canisters and rubber bullets.

Meanwhile, another anti-wall march was staged in the village of Nabi Salih after Friday prayers.

From the first minute, the Israeli occupation army proceeded to block off the village’s entrances and crack down on the peaceful demonstration using gas and rubber bullets.

Protesters raised Palestinian and Egyptian flags and chanted slogans of solidarity with Egyptian protests demanding the president there to step down.
