After the prayers, the demonstrators headed towards the Apartheid Wall carrying Palestinian flags and singing national songs. When they reached the Wall, a group of young people climbed it and put a Palestinian flag on it, to let the Israeli Occupation Forces know that this Wall will not stop the Palestinian struggle.
The Israeli Occupation Forces, from behind concrete blocks, shot gas canisters, sound bombs, rubber bullets, and live bullets at the demonstrators. Eventually the IOF opened the gates of the Wall and chased the demonstrators. The IOF chased the demonstrators till the borders of the village. During the confrontation one demonstratorâs foot was injured and he needed to be taken the hospital while dozens of others suffered from teargas inhalation.
