Protesters dismantle section of wall in Bil'in village, in West Bank

Protesters in Bil'in village continued dismantling a section of the Israeli Wall that the Israeli army began removing earlier this week, in accordance with an Israeli court ruling made four years ago to move the Wall in that area.

During the Friday demonstration, seven people were injured as Bil段n villagers in central West Bank celebrated the removal of the old Israeli wall built on their lands.

Six locals and one French activist sustained moderate wounds as they were hit in the arms and legs by gas bombs fired by Israeli soldiers.

Villages all over the West Bank also held their weekly protests on Friday against the Israeli built wall on their lands.

Today protests were reported in Nil段n and Nabi Saleh in the central west Bank and al Ma痴sara village in the south.

In Nabi Saleh troops injured a nine year old girl and arrested one international activist. In Nil段n many were treated for the effects of tear gas inhalation while in al Ma痴sara, soldiers did not allow people to reach the construction site of the wall.

Residents of Bil段n started to organize a weekly nonviolent protest against the Israeli wall six and a half years ago. In September 2007 the villagers continued protesting; and the legal proceedings managed to get to the Israeli Supreme Court of Justice, to order a halt to the wall construction.

The court ruled for a re-routing of the section of wall built on Bil'in's land. Due to the ruling, the villagers got back 275 of the 600 acres Israel took for the wall and the nearby settlement of (Modi段n Illit).

In 2004 the International Court of Justice in The Hague ruled the Israeli wall illegal.

In February of last year and after two years of stalling the Israeli army began rerouting the wall by constructing a new one. This week the new wall was finished and army bulldozers started to remove the old one away; a scene that is unusual for Bil段n, where Wall construction is a daily occurrence.

Even with the peaceful nature of the Bil段n protests the army has faced it with violence; leading to death. In January 2010 Jawaher Abu Rahmah was killed due to severe tear gas inhalation.

Her brother Bassem was killed as well when an Israel soldier shot him in the chest with a tear gas bomb in April of 2009. Locals estimate that 1400 people have been injured by the army fire in Bil段n protests since they started and as many as 140 people have been arrested.
