In the West Bank, Israeli settlers closed down a road between Nablus and Qalqilya, leading to confrontations between their military escort and Palestinians and injuries from physical assault and tear gas. Israeli settlers also raided Jinsafut, but were confronted and left without incident. Israeli forces violently dispersed Palestinian protesters in Kafr Qaddum, injuring 3 with rubber-coated bullets; others suffered tear-gas related injuries. In East Jerusalem, 2 Palestinians were arrested in Issawiyya. (WAFA 1/29; PCHR 2/4)
