JERUSALEM (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces hit a journalist with a tear gas canister during clashes in the Jerusalem governorate as Palestinians marked Land Day, a local popular committee spokesman said.

Hani Halabiyya told Ma'an that Palestinian journalist Rami Illariyya, who works for al-Quds newspaper, was targeted by Israeli troops and hit with a high-velocity tear gas canister in al-Eizariya.

Dozens of youths were hurt by tear gas and rubber-coated steel bullets during clashes with Israeli forces in al-Eizariya and nearby Abu Dis, Halabiyya said.

He added that Israeli forces arrested 18-year-old Ahmad Khalid Warrad during the clashes, which lasted for over three hours.

An Israeli army spokeswoman did not return calls seeking comment.

Land Day commemoration marks the death of six Palestinian citizens of Israel, who took part in a general strike in protest of an Israeli decision to confiscate privately owned Palestinian lands in 1976.

Get well soon Rami,& everyone injured by the occupation! Every day is Land Day,& should be defended& covered by media until the world SANCTIONS Israel completely until it divests from Zionism=Nazism & "Jewish State"=APARTHEID.Every day since 1947-67 on,is Land(theft)Day.For Palestinians to accept that,is like Jews accepting the Holocaust.In Israel,since then,the 'Aryans'are the Ashkenazi's.That's why Israel is self-detructing.Its enemy is Nazi ZIONISM! Bub-bye Zion! Hello real Israel!
