Police stated that some 1650 Palestinian and left-wing protesters participated in the demonstration, calling for the A-Shuhada Road in Hebron to be opened to Palestinian traffic.
Three protesters were arrested for throwing stones and attacking a female Border Patrol officer.
The officer in question was cut on her arm from a sharp object and required medical treatment.
The demonstration coincided with the 17 year anniversary of the incident
in which Baruch Goldstein opened fire at the Cave of the Patriarchs,
killing 29 Palestinians.
