BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Israeli police on Friday dispersed a protest on "the day of wrath" in Umm al-Fahm in support of Palestinian prisoners in Israeli jails.

Hundreds of Palestinian-Israelis rallied in Umm al-Fahm, but they were stopped by Israeli forces after they closed down Wadi Arra street.

Clashes then broke out as police fired tear gas and stun grenades at protesters who responded by throwing rocks.

Sources in the village said that four people were injured.

Police spokeswoman Luba Samari said in a statement that two police officers were lightly wounded and treated at the scene.
