Rioting has been reported in Khan Yunis, Halhul, the Alliance Junction east of Hebron, and Jelzun.

The IDF is deploying significant reinforcements to these areas in an effort to quell the disorder. Palestinian sources are reporting that a number of demonstrators were injured in the Al-Aruv refugee camp.
