Israeli forces disperse Land Day demo in Nablus

March 28, 2014 7:32 P.M. (Updated: March 30, 2014 11:41 A.M.)
NABLUS (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces on Friday dispersed a protest commemorating Land Day in the Nablus village of Burin, a PA official said.

Ghassan Daghlas told Ma'an that villagers had aimed to plant olives trees in Burin following the demonstration, but Israeli forces fired stun grenades and tear gas at the crowds.

A number of activists suffered tear gas inhalation.

The annual Land Day demonstration on March 30 marks the deaths of six Palestinian protesters at the hands of Israeli police and troops during mass protests in 1976 against plans to confiscate Arab land in Galilee.
