Thousands of citizens gathered to commemorate the 65th anniversary of Nakba then marched to Ofer jail, the PIC reporter said, adding that hundreds of young men burnt tires and closed the road leading to the jail.

He said that the young men ambushed an IOF patrol and threw firebombs on it, prompting the soldiers to open heavy fire in all directions.

Red Crescent sources said that more than 40 casualties were treated on the field for metal bullet wounds while two were taken to Ramallah hospitals.

They said that many demonstrators fainted due to the IOF extensive use of teargas.
