RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- Five Palestinians were injured when Israeli forces opened fire with with rubber-coated steel bullets on protestors in the northern West Bank village of Nabi Saleh on Saturday.

Three Palestinians were detained and many others suffered from excessive tear gas inhalation in clashes that took place in the afternoon in the village north of Ramallah.

Nabi Saleh villagers had organized an event to commemorate Rushdie al-Tamimi and Mustafa al-Tamimi, who were killed by Israeli forces in clashes in the village in 2011.

The people of Nabi Saleh have been protesting weekly for four years, demanding that their lands confiscated by Israeli forces to build the separation wall be returned.

The clashes followed similar protests on Friday across the West Bank, when dozens of Palestinians were injured and one detained as Israeli forces opened fire to disperse protests against the Israeli occupation and commemorating Nelson Mandela's death.

In 2004, the International Court of Justice called on Israel to stop construction of the separation wall within the occupied West Bank.

When completed, 85 percent of the wall will run inside the West Bank.

The internationally recognized Palestinian territories of which the West Bank and East Jerusalem form a part have been occupied by the Israeli military since 1967.
