RAMALLAH, (PIC)– Dozens of Palestinians and foreign activists suffered suffocation from tear gas and some were injured by Israeli soldiers during their peaceful anti-wall marches on Friday in different West Bank villages.

The popular committee against the segregation wall and settlement in Bil’in village said the occupation forces fired rubber bullets and tear gas grenades intensively at the protestors upon their arrival at Abu Laymun area near the wall.

It added that two protestors were injured and dozens of peace activists and Palestinians suffocated from tear gas.

A delegation from the British labor party led by Martin Linton participated in Bil’in march.

The protestors carried pictures of Palestinian hunger striker Khader Adnan and activist Ashraf Abu Rahma, who are both in Israeli jails.

In Kafr Qaddum village, dozens of protestors were injured, including a French journalist and a Palestinian news reporter, as they were marching towards the village’s gate which has been closed and controlled by Israeli soldiers for years.

Israeli soldiers at the village’s gate used tear gas to subdue the march causing many protesters to suffocate.

The protestors chanted slogans condemning Israel’s settlement activities and its blockade on the village.

The occupation forces also quelled anti-wall marches that were organized after Friday’s prayers in Masarah village near Bethlehem and Nabi Saleh village west of Ramallah.

The Israeli soldiers did not care about the presence of children and women in these marches and used everything they had, rubber bullets, tear gas and waste water, to attack them and prevent them from reaching the segregation wall.

Three media cameramen, two of them work for TRT satellite channel and New York Times, were reportedly wounded in addition to a Palestinian young man in Nabi Saleh march.

In a separate incident, violent clashes broke out on Friday afternoon between Palestinians and Israeli soldiers in Qaryut village south of Nablus city.

Palestinian citizens from the village organized a march following the weekly prayers to demand the Israeli occupation authority to give them back their lands which its forces appropriated and gave to Israeli settlers.

The rightful owners of the lands tried to plant some seedlings in their seized tract, but a group of Israeli soldiers and settlers prevented them from doing so and attacked them leading to the outbreak of fighting between the two sides.

Other clashes also took place in Burin village, south of Nablus, after Israeli settlers under military protection went on the rampage last night throughout the village.

The settlers threw stones at Burin homes and torched tires near them prompting the Palestinian villagers to go outdoors to fend off the Jewish settlers who withdrew with the help of soldiers to their settlement.
