Palestinians in Bilin march against Israeli occupation, continue 12-year popular resistance

RAMALLAH (Ma’an) -- Palestinians in the village of Bilin in the central occupied West Bank district of Ramallah marched Friday afternoon as part of their weekly demonstration in the village against illegal Israeli settlements and the occupation.

Protesters held Palestinian flags and marched in the village’s streets, calling for national Palestinian unity, expelling settlers from occupied Palestinian land, resisting the occupation and releasing all Palestinian prisoners.

Bilin is one of the most active Palestinian villages in peaceful organized opposition against Israeli policies, as residents have protested every Friday for 12 years, and have often been met with tear gas, rubber-coated steel bullets, and stun grenades from Israeli forces, though no clashes were reported on Friday.
