Dozens of Palestinians were marching from the West Bank village of Asira al-Qabliya in the direction of the Yitzhar settlement in a demonstration supporting the Palestinian Authority's bid to gain full membership for a state at the United Nations.

Residents of Yitzhar were marching in the direction of the demonstrators from Asira al-Qabliya and security forces were on the scene to prevent clashes between the two groups, Army Radio reported.

Several such demonstrations of Palestinians and settlers were expected to take place throughout the West Bank in the coming hours, according to the report.
