At least 20 Israeli military vehicles rolled into the village to stop the demonstration which started after the Friday mid-day prayer and fired a number of tear gas canisters at the protestors causing dozens to choke.

Troops also fired rubber-coated steel bullets wounding four in the legs and shoulders.

The village of Nabi Saleh organizes a weekly protest against the wall and settlements, sometimes ends with clashes between stone-throwing youth and the Israeli soldiers.
