Border Police set an army dog on a group of demonstrators, following clashes between the officers and stone-throwers in Kfar Kadum, West of Nablus on Friday, in a protest that the IDF called violent.

Border Police shot tear-gas projectiles and rubber-coated bullets and local youth threw stones at the police,  said Jonathan Pollak, who is a spokesman for the Palestinian NGO The Popular Struggle Coordination Committee.

The dog attacked one of the Palestinian protesters, biting him on the arm for several minutes and wounding him. The IDF said that the protester was treated at the scene and did not require evacuation. The protester was detained.
