- Approximately 150 violent rioters in Bethlehem hurled rocks and firebombs at Israeli security personnel (see video below).
- Approximately 200 rioters in Qalandia hurled rocks and firebombs at IDF forces.
- Though the media (including the Guardian’s Phoebe Greenwood) have been uncritically repeating Palestinian claims that politician Mustafa Barghouti was hit in the head by a tear gas canister, requiring medical treatment, the IDF contradicted these claims stating definitively that Barghouti was hurt in a brawl that broke out among the Palestinians over who would lead the protest march.
- The IDF responded to Palestinian violence with non-lethal riot dispersal means.
I just couldn’t help but weigh in.
Here’s a photo of just one of the “protesters” in Bethlehem today – aka, Palestinian child abuse.
