Palestinians clash with Israeli police in West Bank protest

RAS KARKAR, West Bank - Israeli security forces fired tear gas and rubber bullets on Friday at rock-throwing Palestinians protesting against land seizures for Jewish settlements in the West Bank.
Around a dozen of the hundreds of Palestinians gathered in the village of Ras Karkar were injured, witnesses said. An Israeli police spokesman had no immediate comment.
An Israeli court broke new judicial ground on Tuesday by giving legal recognition to a Jewish settlement built without Israeli government authorization on privately owned Palestinian land.
Gaza was largely quiet on Friday despite expected border demonstrations, a weekly event in the Islamist Hamas-controlled enclave since March 30.
