Violent Arab Demonstration in Northern Samaria

About ten people were detained briefly, Saturday, following a violent demonstration by  200 Palestinian Authority (PA) residents next to the village of Anin, near the northern Samarian (Shomron) PA city of Jenin, according to Agence France Presse, which says the demonstration was about solidarity with PA prisoners held in Israel.

The demonstrators tried to set up tents next to the Samaria security fence and started throwing rocks at the security forces, who responded with riot-control measures. PA sources say eight people suffered from tear gas inhalation.
