RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- Dozens of Palestinians suffered tear-gas inhalation as Israeli forces suppressed the weekly Friday protest in the Bilin village in the Ramallah and al-Bireh district in the central occupied West Bank.

Israeli forces fired tear-gas bombs and stun grenades to suppress the Bilin weekly marche against Israeli settlement activities and the further expansion of the Israeli separation wall.

International and Israeli peace activists took part in the march, that was called for by the local popular committee against the separation wall and settlements, alongside Palestinian locals.

Protesters waved Palestinian flags and called slogans calling for Palestinian unity, resisting the Israeli occupation and releasing all Palestinian prisoners in Israeli prisons.

Bilin is one of the most active Palestinian villages in peaceful organized opposition against Israeli policies, as residents have protested every Friday for 12 consecutive years, and have often been met with tear gas, rubber-coated steel bullets, and stun grenades from Israeli forces.
