Security forces were using anti-riot measures to disperse the riot. In Ni'lin Palestinians reported that a 20-year-old Palestinian was severely wounded after being struck in the head by a tear-gas canister fired by security forces during a violent anti-fence protest. Another man was wounded by live fire, Palestinians said.
