Summary of the Land Day Riots

Today, a wave of protesters gathered all across Judea and Samaria, marking the Palestinian Land Day. The protesters quickly turned violent, hurling rocks, firebombs, and setting fire to tires.

These events are part of the Global March to Jerusalem (GMJ), an effort by Arabs and international activists to reach Jerusalem and “steal it from the hands of the illegal Zionist occupation.”
