Around 50 villagers supported by Israeli and international peace activists protested the Israeli Wall on Wednesday midday at Al Ma'sarah village located near the southern West Bank city of Bethlehem.

The protest was part of the activities organized by the Popular Committees Against the Wall and Settlements in the West Bank campaign marking the 4th year after the International Court of Justice, which deemed the Israeli Wall in the West Bank is illegal on July 9th 2004.

Israeli troops erected a military barrier at the settlers road separating the village from its lands where the Wall is being built. Troops banned the non violent protest from heading forward.
The protest organizers delivered speeches then the march ended without any clashes with the army.
