Gaza solidarity protestors attacked with new IOF bullet in Bil’in

Today, as for the past four years, along with internationals and Israelis with, thankfully, consciences still alive, the villagers of Bil’in after Friday prayers marched to the nearby Annexation Wall to protest the thieving of 60% of their land by this illegal structure. Today’s protest was imbued with anger and dismay at the ongoing ferocious criminal assault by the Israeli Air Force on the helpless concentration camp that is Gaza. Today was noteworthy by the use of a new bullet by the IOF against the protestors: small, light in weight, green coloured and filled with some liquid or other, it seems innocuous enough at first glance but lacerated the skin and drew blood on impact, yesterday, mourners at the funeral of Mohammad Al-Khawaja with a new tear gas projectile.
Thank you for you continued support,

Perhaps Israel’ armouries will not be sufficient to silence the many protests around the world. London’s is well supported.
