Israeli forces suppress weekly Bilin march, dozens of suffocation cases reported

RAMALLAH � Dozens of Palestinians Friday suffocated by tear gas as Israeli forces violently suppressed the weekly march in the village of Bilin, in the West Bank district of Ramallah, said local sources.

Israeli soldiers attacked the march, which was organized by the popular committee against the separation wall, firing tear gas canisters and stun grenades toward demonstrators, including foreign activists, causing dozens to suffocate due to tear gas inhalation.

Bilin residents have been protesting every Friday against Israel’s confiscation of Palestinian land for over 11 years now, and have often been met with tear gas, rubber-coated steel bullets and stun grenades from Israeli forces.
