According to a written statement by a local NGO, the Committee Against The Wall and Settlements, the Israeli police used tear gas and rubber bullets to disperse the crowd in the Palestinian town of Kafr Qaddum.

Dozens of Palestinian demonstrators were also affected by the gas, the statement added.
