In the West Bank, Israeli settlers smashed the windshields of Palestinian-owned cars in Hebron. Israeli forces violently dispersed Palestinian protesters in the Old City of Hebron, hitting 1 journalist with a concussion bomb. Israeli forces also violently dispersed Palestinian protesters at a checkpoint near Jenin, injuring 1 with a rubber-coated bullet. Protests in support of Palestinian prisoners were also held in al-Arroub refugee camp, Dura, al-Khader, and Bethlehem, leading to tear-gas related injuries. 5 Palestinians were arrested—including 1 relative of 1 of the prisoners who escaped from Gilboa prison on 9/6—during late-night raids in Arrabah, Qalandia, Dheisheh refugee camp, Abu Njeim, and Dura. In East Jerusalem, 1 Palestinian was arrested at the Haram al-Sharif compound. (WAFA, WAFA, WAFA 9/9; JP, WAFA 9/10; PCHR 9/16)
