BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Palestinian Authority police prevented young men from the three refugee camps in the district from marching toward Israel's separation wall, which cages the city in from the north, in events marking Nakba Day.

Early in the day teens throwing rocks at Israeli guard towers dotting the eight-meter-high separation wall edging the Al-Ayida refugee camp were chased off by police, and later gathered near the Al-Azzah refugee camp in what witnesses said were more hundreds for a march to the military checkpoint near Rachel's Tomb.

Palestinian security forces were dispatched to the area, with witnesses saying some 70 patrolmen were on the scene to disperse the gathered young men.
