Palestinians from Bil’in taped their hands together to express their intention to hold a non-violent demonstration. As they marched out of the village soldiers laid barbed wire along the path. A van with a load speaker on it then appeared behind the barb wire and let out a loud high pitch that caused the crowd to disperse. Palestinian youth threw stones at the van and soldiers entered the village throwing tear gas and shooting rubber coated metal bullets. Some of the Palestinians wearing pink plastic gloves threw plastic balloons filled with water and chicken feces.
