Dozens of IDF troops attempted on Thursday evening to clear a trailer established near the West Bank village of Bil'in. Einat Podjarny of the Israeli protest group Anarchists against the Fence told The Jerusalem Post that the forces tried to tear the roof off of the trailer in which 10 activists were barricaded. The popular committee of Bil'in set up the trailer on Wednesday morning. About 20 Israeli demonstrators and 50 Palestinians attempted to prevent the evacuation. According to the Anarchists against the Fence representative, the IDF shot gas grenades to disperse the protesters.
