Israeli troops have attacked a group of Palestinian and international activists protesting Tel Aviv's separation barrier on Palestinian land in the occupied West Bank.

At least 13 demonstrators were injured on Friday when Israeli soldiers clashed with the protesters in the town of Bil'in, near the West Bank city of Ramallah, Xinhua quoted medics as saying.

The incident occurred when Israeli forces fired live rounds, teargas and rubber bullets to disperse the peaceful demonstration.

Among the injured were a journalist and a young woman, who is said to be in critical condition.

Israeli forces also arrested four others, including three foreign rights activists.

A separate anti-settlement demonstration near Bethlehem was attacked by Israeli troops. Several people inhaled teargas, witnesses said.

Bil'in and nearby towns have been the scene of weekly protests by Palestinian and international campaigners against the wall Israel has been building across Palestinian farmland in the West Bank and against the unrelenting expansion of illegal settlements.
