Clashes at Israel's West Bank barrier
Text size Aa Aa

Protesters have clashed with Israeli soldiers during a weekly protest at Israel’s West Bank barrier.

Palestinians and international activists threw stones at Israeli troops. They fired back with rounds of tear gas. No injuries were reported but clashes here are becoming more frequent and more violent. Outside a Jewish occupied house, protesters also gathered to pray. In a predominantly Arab neighbourhood of East Jerusalem, protesters said the settler population is growing. The Israeli government says it is enforcing a 10-month settlement freeze and dispatching inspectors.
