In the West Bank, Israeli settlers grazed their livestock on Palestinian agricultural crops in the Masafer Yatta area, causing damage. Israeli forces set up military checkpoints around Jericho, severely impeding movement in and out of the city. Israeli forces also closed the Huwwara and Za’atara checkpoints, impeding traffic in the northern part of the West Bank, as the second day of Eid was commencing. In East Jerusalem, Israeli forces raided the Bab al-Rahma area of the Haram al-Sharif Compound, destroying electric panels and speakers. In Tel Aviv, thousands of Israelis protested against the Israeli government for the sixteenth Saturday in a row. (AJ, QDS, WAFA, WAFA, WAFA, WAFA 4/22; HA 4/25; PCHR 4/27; UNOCHA 5/5)
