Clashes at West Bank protest camp
on 02/02/2013 13:47:46
The soldiers were trying to dismantle tents and shacks built on Palestinian-owned farmland near the village of Burin.
About a dozen young men and boys, apparently Jewish settlers living nearby, also hurled rocks at the activists. No injuries were immediately reported.
It is the fourth protest encampment that Palestinians have built in recent weeks to draw attention to Israel's control of territory that they seek for their future state.
An Israeli military spokeswoman could not immediately confirm the clashes.
