A number of protests to commemorate Land Day were taking place in the north of the country on Saturday, according to the police.

The central Land Day protest was expected to take place on Saturday afternoon in the Galilee town of Sakhnin where the police said it was prepared to prevent disturbances of the peace.  

Land Day is held annually on March 30 to commemorate the deaths of six Galilee Arabs in 1976 riots over a government decision to confiscate land.
