Hundreds join weekly anti-wall protests across West Bank

PublishedJune 17, 2011

RAMALLAH (Ma’an) — Palestinians and international activists protested Friday against Israel’s separation wall in villages across the West Bank.

Israeli forces fired-tear canisters at the demonstrators in Ni’lin, Bil’in, Nabi Saleh and Al-Mas’ara, villages near Ramallah and Bethlehem.

In Al-Mas’ara, near Bethlehem, activists protested Israel’s decision to demolish a mosque in the village.

Israeli troops used force to quash the rally, injuring three Palestinian protesters, the local popular committee said.

The committee called for a demonstration Wednesday to stop Israeli forces from demolishing the mosque.
