Non-violent protests were held in five West Bank villages, Friday, as well as in the city of Bethlehem, where Israeli troops attacked protesters and wounded one young man in the leg with a live bullet.

The protests were organized at the village of Kufer Qadom, in the northern West Bank, and in the villages of Bil’in, Nil’in and Al Nabi Saleh, in the central West Bank. Also, an anti-wall protest was organized in the southern West Bank village of Al Ma’ssara.

Israeli soldiers attacked protesters in Al Nabi Saleh before they had left the village; troops later invaded Al Nabi Saleh and fired tear gas at residents homes. Many were treated for the effects of tear gas inhalation.

In the nearby villages of Bil’in and Nil’in, residents, along with Israeli and international supporters, reached the Israeli annexation wall built on lands taken from local famers, before soldiers stationed there fired at them with tear gas and showered them with bad smelling chemical water. At both protests, many were treated for the effects of tear gas inhalation.

Two civilians were injured at the village of Kufer Qadum, when Israeli troops attacked the weekly protest, there.

Elsewhere on Friday, in Al Ma’ssara village, Israeli troops stopped residents and their supporters at the village entrance, forcing them back using rifle butts and batons. No serious injuries were reported.
