Dozens of Palestinians, as well as Israeli and foreign left-wing activists, clashed with security forces in two anti-security fence demonstrations west of Ramallah on Friday afternoon. One border policeman, who sustained light injuries to his knee from a stone hurled by the protesters in Ni'lin, was evacuated to the Assaf Harofeh Medical Center in Tzrifin.
