 RAMALLAH, -- Tens of Palestinian citizens were treated for breathing difficulties while others were injured in the Israeli occupation forces' violent dispersal of the weekly anti wall marches in West Bank villages on Friday.

Dozens of foreign solidarity activists took part in the Bilin (Ramallah) peaceful march against the wall, hoisting Palestinian flags, and chanting national slogans calling for unity.

IOF troops fired gas bombs and rubber-coated bullets wounding a cameraman and a youth in the process. Both were directly hit with teargas canisters.

In a similar march in Ma'sara, Bethlehem, a 16-year-old boy was hit with a sonic bomb in his chest when the IOF soldiers used force to break up the peaceful rally while dozens were treated for gas inhalation.

The IOF soldiers quelled a third demonstration in Nilin village, Ramallah, causing breathing problems to many of the participants.
