VIDEO | Israeli forces attack Palestinian protesters on Land Day


Palestinians take part in a rally marking Land Day in Beit Hanun in the northern Gaza Strip on March 30, 2013.
Israeli forces have attacked Palestinian demonstrators in the occupied West Bank and Gaza on the 37th anniversary of Land Day, injuring dozens of protesters.

Clashes broke out in the village of Jayyus on Saturday after Israeli troops fired teargas canisters at hundreds of Palestinians who wanted to plant trees in agricultural lands in commemoration of Land Day. Several people were injured in the attack.

Similar scuffles erupted at Qalandiya checkpoint in the West Bank city of Ramallah, where Israeli forces fired tear gas and rubber bullets to disperse protesters. Several protesters were also wounded in the incident.

March 30 is commemorated every year because of a deadly incident on that day in 1976 in which Israeli troops killed six Palestinians during a protest against the Israeli occupation of the Palestinian lands.

Palestinian activists also marched on the Israeli apartheid barrier. A similar rally was held in the town of Sakhnin.

Palestinians in the Gaza Strip also commemorated the annual event near the Erez crossing and the city of Beit Hanun in the north, while in Khan Yunis they planted olive trees.

In Rafah, in the south of the strip, more than 500 Palestinians participated in a rally during which Israeli forces fired tear gas and injured several people.

During the 2012 Land Day protests one person was killed and more than two dozen others were wounded after Israeli forces opened fire on demonstrators in the northern Gaza Strip.

On the same day in the West Bank, Israeli forces beat up a crowd of peaceful demonstrators in al-Quds (Jerusalem) and arrested a number of protesters. Israeli police also fired rubber bullets, and teargas, and used stun grenades to disperse the protesters.
