Some 1,200 demonstrators gather in village west of Ramallah to mark fifth anniversary of their protest activities. Some manage to damage parts of separation fence and hurl stones at security forces, who try to keep distance and avoid clashes
Hundreds mark five years since the first weekly anti-fence protest near the Palestinian village.
At 11am Wednesday morning 2 jeeps and approximately 10 soldiers invaded Bil’in village. Witnesses reported that many young schoolgirls were coming home from their school day as soldiers surveyed the village.
In the village of Bilin, Palestinians will regain 170 acres. Residents celebrate, but foes of the barrier say they'll continue to protest until it's completely gone.
Newly routed barrier will hand 700,000 square meters of agricultural land back to Palestinian village.
