WEST BANK, (PIC)– Peaceful marches against the segregation wall and settlement activities took place on Friday afternoon in different West Bank villages despite the violence used by Israeli soldiers against them.

In Masarah village near Bethlehem, many Palestinians and foreign activists suffered the effects of inhaling tear gas that was fired by Israeli soldiers as they were marching towards the wall.

This week, Masarah protestors dedicated their march to support the cause of Palestinian lawmakers detained in Israeli jails and some of them delivered speeches urging the international community and the world’s decision-makers to have them released.

Dozens of foreign activists and Palestinians were also attacked in Bil’in village near Ramallah city, and Kafr Qaddum village near Nablus city with tear gas grenades and rubber bullets in their marches against the wall and settlement.

The popular committee of Bil’in said their anti-wall march was organized this week in solidarity with prisoner from Islamic Jihad Khader Adnan, who has been on hunger strike since the first day of his detention.

For his part, media coordinator of Kafr Qaddum Murad Ishtiwi said the Israeli occupation forces dealt very violently with the march and fired tear gas intensively and randomly on protestors and residential areas causing many women and children at homes to suffer from suffocation.

The occupation forces also attacked with tear gas grenades, rubber bullets, and waste water the weekly march of Nabi Saleh village near Ramallah city and detained journalists.
