As soon as the protesters reached the gate of the wall separating villagers from their lands Israeli troops stationed their fired tear gas and sound grenade at them.
An Israeli peace activist was hit with a tear gas canister in her hand; other protesters suffered from the effects of tear gas inhalation and were treated by local medical crew. The weekly protest ended with clashes between soldiers and local youth, no injuries were reported during those clashes.
