  16 civilians of antiwall protesters were injured and four abducted by Israeli troops
humanitarian voice - 2011-04-23

Anti-wall marches attcked by Israeli forces

On Friday, 16 civilians were injured and four abducted as Israeli troops attacked the weekly anti-wall protests in the villages of Bil段n, Nil段n and al-Nabi Saleh, in central West Bank as well as the village of al-Ma痴ara, in the south.

In Bil段n, 15 protesters were injured when troops attacked the weekly march. This week痴 protest in Bil段n ended a three day conference on nonviolent resistance in Palestine.

The Conference began on Wednesday in Bil'in, and attracted hundreds of supporters from around the world, including Italian parliamentarian Luisa Morgantini and the parents of Rachel Corrie, who was killed by the Israeli military in 2003.

Dubbed the Sixth International Conference on the Palestinian Popular Struggle, the annual conference was dedicated this year to Italian activist Vittorio Arrigoni, who was killed last Friday allegedly by a Salafist (right-wing political Islamist) group in Gaza.

The conference was attended by a number of Palestinian officials in addition to members of the European Parliament, and hundreds of international and local peace and human rights activists.

On Friday midday, international activists joined the villagers and marched toward the wall built on farmers' lands by the Israeli army.

Israeli soldiers stopped protesters before they reach the wall and fired tear gas and rubber-coated steel bullets at them to force them back.

15 civilians were injured including a journalist and three international supporters. The marchers continued forward and reached the gate of the wall, as they have done on every Friday since early 2005.

Soldiers then forced the non-violent demonstrators back into the village, then stormed the village, firing tear gas at houses. Many were treated for the effects of tear gas inhalation.

In the nearby village of Nil段n, many were treated for the effects of tear gas inhalation also on Friday during the anti wall protest.

Troops attack the villagers using tear gas as soon as they reached the gate of the wall which separates the farmers from their agricultural lands.

In the southern West Bank, the villagers of al-Ma痴sara, along with their international supporters, protested the Israeli wall being built on local farmers' lands.

Israeli soldiers attacked the protesters using tear gas, preventing the march from reaching the construction site of the Wall; many participants in the non-violent demonstration were treated for the effects of tear gas inhalation.
