One soldier and one police officer were lightly injured when rocks were thrown at them during a clash between settlers and Palestinians near the West Bank settlement of Neve Tzof.
Approximately one hundred protesters were present at the demonstration. IDF troops arrested seven Palestinians, and security forces dispersed the crowd.

In the east Jerusalem neighborhood of Sheikh Jarrah, meanwhile, violence broke out between security forces and left-wing activists who were protesting Israeli treatment of Arabs in the area.
