Bil`in, West Bank (Panetta)

International human rights activists, including Bishop Tom Gumbelton, join a peaceful protest in Bil`in, West Bank. The weekly action is organized to protest the “security” wall and to oppose the illegal occupation of their land, some of which in 2007 the Israeli High Court conceded was Palestinian.

Despite the peaceful gathering, Israeli security forces opened fire with tear gas and rounds of rubber-coated bullets. One Palestinian medic was struck in the hand by a bullet that shattered his hand.

Youth are photographed retaliating against the tear gas and bullets with stones.
