At the weekly anti-Wall protest in Bil’in today around 75 villagers, internationals and Israelis tried to march to the site of the illegal Wall but were stopped by soldiers on the edge of the village. As the demonstrators tried to march through the olive groves the soldiers started firing tear gas and rubber bullets, forcing the peaceful protesters back into the village.
Soldiers invaded the village and arrested Mohammed Katib, member of the Popular Resistance Committee against the Wall, from one house for no apparent reason. He was held for over an hour before being released. Soldiers fired multiple tear gas cannisters and shot rubber bullets at villagers as they made several forays into the village.
