Dozens were treated in Bil'in for the effects of Tear Gas inhalation and a batch of crops were set on fire from one canister in the course of the demonstration.
The weekly demonstration was usually large this week as over 50 Israeli supporters joined the villagers in their unarmed protest. Despite the large size, Israel attacked the demonstration with unusual high amounts of tear gas. One man fell unconscious for over 20 minutes in the course of the demonstration and many children suffered from tear gas inhalation.
Weekly demonstration attened by roughly 60 and one person was injuried when hit with a tear gas canister. The Israeli army used the skunk on protesters but the protest ended quickly due to extreme heat.

In total nine people were arrested in the course of the demonstrations. Three people were injured, including a 14 year old and a 9 year old both from tear gas projectiles.
