Israeli soldiers attack nonviolent resistance in Bil'in Village

2005-06-06

During a nonviolent demonstration yesterday in Bil in Village Israeli occupation forces injured 7 Palestinians, among them Palestinian member of the Israeli Knesset Ahmed Atibi.

Bil in activist Mohammad Khatib told PNN, Our plan to demonstrate will continue on Friday. Thousands are supposed to participate in this demonstration, with Knesset members and Israeli and foreign leftists, and also PLC members. In this demonstration we will only hold Palestinian flags to show Palestinian unity.

Speaking with PNN on Thursday, Bil in activist Mohammad Khatib explained the focus of the demonstrations. We, of course, for the last 3 months, we ve been going along with the same program of protesting the Wall. We are having nonviolent marches and demonstrations against the Wall and in each one there is a message for the international community and for the Israelis. The last idea in the march Tuesday, was a wall built on the shoulders of the people. This idea is just to show how the Wall destroys the Palestinian people s lives.

Our plan to demonstrate will continue on Friday. Thousands are supposed to participate in this demonstration, with Knesset members and Israeli and foreign leftists, and also PLC members. In this demonstration we will only hold Palestinian flags to show Palestinian unity.

Among the seven injured are Palestinian member of the Israeli Knesset Na ib Ahmed Atibi and a elected official from the Palestinian Legislative Council.
