Once again, Gaza violence spilled over into the West Bank after Muslim prayers on Friday, and Palestinian medics said that IDF soldiers shot a Palestinian dead during a violent protest against the army's operation in the Strip. They named the dead man as Musab Daana, 20. Witnesses said demonstrators hurled rocks at troops who stopped them from marching into the Israeli-controlled sector of Hebron following Friday prayers. They said the soldiers fired tear gas and rubber bullets to disperse the protesters, but a medic said that Daana was killed by a live round to the head. Five other men were lightly wounded. The army had no immediate comment. In the capital, an Arab was arrested in the east Jerusalem neighborhood of Ras el Amud on suspicion of hurling stones at Border Police forces. In addition, dozens of Arabs demonstrated near the Old City's Damascus Gate against the Gaza offensive, and police prevented the demonstrators from marching to Salah a-Din Street. In Silwan, Arabs hurled three Molotov cocktails at security forces, damaging a jeep. Meanwhile, a border policeman was lightly wounded when he was hit by a stone during a protest in Ni'lin, west of Ramallah. There were also protests next to Kalandiya and in Bil'in.
