An Associated Press photographer suffered a broken rib on Saturday while being detained by IDF forces during a protest in the West Bank.

The photographer, Nasser Shiyoukhi, was injured in Beit Omar, a Palestinian village where residents, joined by foreign activists, hold a weekly protest against a nearby Jewish settlement.

During Saturday's protest, IDF soldiers physically scuffled with activists who pushed them and yelled at them. The forces frequently fired tear gas to disperse the crowd.
