Some 300 Palestinians, foreign and left-wing Israeli activists hurled stones at Border Police forces during a violent protest against the security fence in Ni'lin, west of Ramallah, on Friday afternoon. The security forces used crowd control measures to disperse the protesters, several of whom had entered a closed military zone, the IDF said. Palestinians reported that one of the protesters was wounded in the leg.
