Four protesters, including Palestinian youths and Israeli left-wing demonstrators were lightly injured during a protest against the construction of the security fence west of Ramallah on Friday. Two of the injured Palestinian youths were wounded near the town of Bil'in after they hurled rocks at IDF forces. Near the town of Aboud, an Israeli demonstrator was wounded in the arm by a rubber bullet shot by an Israeli soldier, while a Palestinian was hit in the head by a gas grenade that was used to disperse the demonstration. The violent protests against the fence have become a weekly event, occurring every Friday near the site where construction is underway.
