Hundreds commemorated Land Day in the West Bank village of Nabi Saleh, in protest of ongoing land annexations, settlements and military occupation. Among the hundreds who attended the march were delegates from several local popular committees such as Ni’lin Bil’in, Kufr Qaddum and Hebron based Youth against Settlements. Many international and Israeli solidarity activists also joined the march. The Israeli army attempted to disperse the march with barrages of tear gas canisters and rubber-coated steel bullets. One protester was arrested and threatened with pepper spray, as soldiers chased more protesters in an attempt to detain them as well. No serious injuries reported.
