PressTV - Palestinian lawmaker wounded in Land Day protest
Palestinian lawmaker Mustafa Barghouti has been injured by Israeli forces attacking peaceful demonstrations marking international Land Day, Press TV reports. Barghouti was wounded on Friday in the city of al-Quds (Jerusalem) where he attended a Land Day rally. Israeli forces opened fire on peaceful pro-Palestinian rallies across the occupied Palestinian territories, with clashes underway between Israeli troops and Palestinians in the occupied West Bank city of Qalandiya. Earlier reports said at least two protesters were injured by Israeli troops and several others were arrested. More demonstrations were planned for after the Friday Prayers across the West Bank and Gaza Strip as well as in East al-Quds (Jerusalem) despite Tel Aviv restricting access to al-Aqsa Mosque for the weekly prayers.
