Protesters Throw Rocks at Police Near Bethlehem

 

About eleven people were arrested at a protest against the security fence near Walaja, north of Bethlehem. The security fence is intended to create a border between Jewish and Arab areas of Judea and Samaria and prevent terrorists from infiltrating. The protesters said it will inhibit life in their community. Jewish supporters joined the Arab protesters. Some of the protestors threw rocks at Israeli police who responded with crowd dispersion methods.
