The Committee said that resident Mu’awiya Al-Khatib, 17, was shot in his foot while dozens of protesters were treated for the effects of teargas inhalation.
Similar to previous weeks, dozens of local residents, Israeli and international peace activists participated in the protest.
The Committee stated that the soldiers fired rubber-coated metal bullets, stun grenades and gas bombs at the protesters as soon as they arrived at the Abu Lemon area that was returned to the resident following an extended legal battle in Israeli court.
The soldiers also sprayed the protesters with waste-water mixed with chemicals; gas bombs and concussion grenades fired by the army also led to fires in olive orchards.
It is worth mentioning that a Brazilian delegation also participated in the protests that marked the eighth anniversary of an advisory ruling of the International Court of Justice, in which the court ruled that the Annexation Wall is illegal and called for its removal.
Israel confiscated nearly %60 of the lands owned by Bil’in residents; the stolen lands were used for the construction of illegal Israeli settlements and the illegal Annexation Wall.
Hundreds of residents and activists were injured during Israeli military attacks against nonviolent protests in Bil’in, the nearby Ni’lin and Nabi Saleh villages, Al Ma’sara village, south of Bethlehem, Kufr Qaddoum near the northern West Bank city of Qalqilia, and several other villages in the West Bank.
In Kufr Qaddoum, a 40-year old man, Majid Jum’ah, was kidnapped during the non-violent protest while several protestors were treated for the effects of tear gas inhalation after they were bombarded with canisters. A house was evacuated due to nearby fires resulting from teargas bombs fired by the army.
Bil’in is a leading village in creative nonviolent resistance against the Annexation Wall and settlements, and became the target of continuous Israeli invasions that also include the kidnapping of several figures of the nonviolent resistance movement.
Several residents, including Jawaher Abu Rahma and her brother Basel Abu Rahma, were killed by Israeli fire and gas bombs during as the army uses excessive force against the nonviolent protesters.
