OCCUPIED JERUSALEM, (PIC)– Dozens of Palestinians and international solidarity activists suffered breathing difficulties as a result inhaling teargas fired at them by the IOF to disperse them as they participated in Bilin’s weekly anti-wall protest after the Friday prayers.

Local residents, Israeli peace activists and international solidarity activists participated in the protest called for by the popular committee to resist the wall and settlements in Bilin.

Participants raised the Palestinian flag and chanted slogans calling for Palestinian unity and for holding to Palestinian constants, resisting occupation and freedom to all Palestinian captives.

Participants also carried out a number of voluntary tasks on recovered land and installed benches and dustbins at the Abu Laimun conservation as a nucleus for the Bilin Park.

The popular committee called on the Palestinian people at home and exile as well as free people everywhere to support the Palestinian struggle for freedom.
