RAMALLAH, (PIC)-- Tens of Palestinians and a number of foreign solidarity activists suffered breathing difficulties on Friday when the Israeli occupation forces (IOF) fired teargas canisters and stun grenades at them in Bilin and Ma'sara villages' weekly marches.

Local sources reported that participants in both marches in Bilin, Ramallah district, and in Ma'sara, Bethlehem district, chanted slogans denouncing the racist, separation wall and the Balfour Declaration on its 93rd anniversary.

The marchers raised Palestinian flags and placards condemning the Balfour Declaration while chanting national slogans calling for shunning internal differences and sticking to Palestinian constants and resisting occupation.

The demonstrators, who included tens of foreign and Israeli activists, also called for the release of all detainees in Israeli occupation jails.
