 RAMALLAH  -- Tens of Palestinian citizens of Bilin village and foreign solidarity activists were hurt on Friday when the Israeli occupation forces (IOF) used violence to quell the weekly peaceful anti wall march.

Participants hoisted Palestinian flags, anti occupation slogans and placards denouncing attacks on Palestinian homes in occupied Jerusalem during the march that also coincided with the 22nd anniversary of the start of the first intifada back in December 1987.

They marched in the village streets calling for national unity and shunning internal differences. They also called for maintaining Palestinian constants and resisting occupation.

The marchers called for the release of all detainees in Israeli jails topped by coordinator of the popular committee against the wall Abdullah Abu Rahma.

IOF soldiers fired teargas canisters at the demonstrators when they approached the wall, which confiscated a huge chunk of the village lands, causing breathing problems for dozens of them.

The popular committee, which organizes the weekly event, praised in a statement the Swedish draft proposal to the European Union, saying that it went in harmony with the international resolutions in this regard.
