Tens of Palestinian protesters gathered at noon on Friday (Dec. 31) in the Bil’in and Nebi Salah villages located near Ramallah and hurled rocks at security forces who responded with riot dispersal techniques. Among them, forces used a routine quantity of tear gas. Many countries allow local forces the domestic use of tear gas today.

As opposed to Palestinian claims that the disorderly conduct which took place on Friday was nonviolent, the following pictures taken by security forces and showing protesters launching rocks prove that, like many previous incidents, this one was actually violent and illegal.
