A Border Policeman was lightly hurt in the eye as security forces contended on Friday afternoon with disquiet throughout the West Bank.

In Bil’in and Na’alin, about 150 Palestinians and left-wing activists rioted and hurled rocks at police as they gathered to protest the construction of the security fence. Security forces used riot dispersal means to restore quiet and detained two of the rioters.

Meanwhile, in the east Jerusalem neighborhood of Ras el-Amud, youths hurled rocks at security forces, lightly wounding a Border Policeman.

Rioting and rock-throwing were also reported near Ramallah.

Quiet was restored later in the afternoon.
