About 300 Palestinians gathered near Ramallah after Friday morning prayers to protest and hurl rocks at security forces.

Despite the IDF decree forbidding non-residents of the area - such as left-wing activists from Israel or a foreign country - from entering it, violent demonstrations were taking place in Na'alin, Bil'in, Dir Nizam and a neighboring village.

Security forces used riot dispersal means in an effort to restore quiet, and three Palestinians were arrested on suspicion of rock-hurling.
