Police and IDF forces dispersed hundreds of Israeli and international left-wing as well as Palestinian protesters on Friday at demonstrations held in at the West Bank villages of Nil'in and Bil'in near the West Bank security barrier, as well as a very large gathering in the east Jerusalem neighborhood of Sheikh Jarrah.

At the Sheikh Jarrah protests, police had to forcefully prevent protesters from approaching the homes of Jewish families in the contested neighborhood, after which, police claimed, approximately 200 demonstrators sought to block a nearby highway.

The West Bank protests were dispersed with tear gas after the protesters began to throw stones at IDF forces.

No word was received on the number of arrests that occurred at the various demonstrations at the time of this report.
