QALQILIYA (Ma’an) -- Palestinians inhaled tear gas which the Israeli forces shot to disperse the weekly demonstration in Kafr Qaddum east of Qalqiliya on Friday, activists and witnesses said.

The demonstration started after Friday prayer toward the eastern entrance of the village. Eyewitnesses told Ma’an the Israeli forces who were on the entrance fired tear gas toward the demonstrators.

The grenades started a fire in the lands of the villagers which caused damage, they said.

In Nabi Saleh, meanwhile, activists set up a tent protest site mimicking the ongoing social equality demonstrations rocking the political establishment in Israel. Soldiers forced it down.
