A Israeli photographer was lightly injured on Friday during a demonstration near the village of Deir Nizam, north of Ramallah. She was brought to Tel Hashomer Hospital for treatment.

The photographer was hit by a rock thrown by Palestinian protesters. Over 25 Palestinians threw rocks at security forces to protest a land dispute with settlers in the area, according to an IDF report. Elsewhere during the day, dozens of Palestinians and foreign and Israeli left-wings activists protested the construction of West Bank security barrier in Nil'in and Bil'in as well as in Nabi Salah.

The IDF dispersed the crowds with tear gas and other crowd dispersal measures after protesters began to throw stones. Two activists were arrested in Nil'in, one of them was a foreign activist.
