Medics in the Gaza Strip said IDF soldiers used live fire Friday to prevent Land Day protesters from nearing the frontier wall, seriously wounding one man.

Thousands of Palestinians demonstrated on Friday to commemorate the 36th annual Land Day, a day in which Arab Israelis and Palestinians rally in opposition to what they say are Israeli policies of land appropriation.

The most hectic protests took place near Jerusalem, with thousands of demonstrators clashing with security forces in a protest Public Security Minister Yithak Aharonovitch called a "show."
