Israeli forces suppress weekly Bilin march

Dec. 14, 2018 4:30 P.M. (Updated: Dec. 15, 2018 11:40 A.M.)
RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces suppressed the weekly Bilin march, west of Ramallah City in the central occupied West Bank, on Friday afternoon.

Locals, international and Israeli peace activists took part in the march, that was called for by the local popular resistance committee.

The march set off following Friday prayers at the village's mosque.

Protesters waved Palestinian flags and repeated slogans calling for Palestinian unity, resisting the Israeli occupation, releasing all Palestinian prisoners and for refugees to return to their homes of which they were displaced.
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.
