PA Land Day procession towards Yitzhar

As part of Land Day events, about 150 Arabs from the Samarian Palestinian Authority village of Madama marched toward the nearby Jewish community of Yitzhar on Thursday afternoon.

Security forces used crowd-control measures to prevent rioters from getting too close to Yitzhar. Yitzhar residents report that the Arabs threw stones and threw tear gas canisters back at the soldiers. There is a report of a rioter who was wounded by a rubber bullet.
