Video: Violent Riot in Bil’in During Weekend

The above video shows scenes from the riot in the village of Bil’in on January 7th 2011.

Every Friday, demonstrators riot near the village of Bil’in protesting the path of the security fence. The Israeli High Court ruled that the course of the fence should be altered, and currently work is underway for the new fence. When the new security fence is completed, the one adjacent to Bil’in will be removed. Despite this, the demonstrators continue to riot, using violence, throwing rocks and sometimes firebombs. Over the past several years over 200 Israeli security personnel have been injured at these riots.

In the video Brig. Gen. Nitzan Alon, the Commander of the Judea and Samaria Division, discusses protocol for handling the riots, followed by rioters marching, damaging the security fence and hurling rocks towards security forces.
