JERUSALEM (Ma'an) -- Israeli police lightly injured a woman and arrested a man during clashes that broke out in Jerusalem on Sunday, a Ma'an reporter said.

Following a demonstration marking Land Day, Israeli police officers prevented demonstrators from entering Damascus Gate using batons and pepper spray.

The pepper spray burned a woman's face, and she was taken to a nearby hospital for treatment.

Police also arrested a man and took him to Salah al-Din police station.

Meanwhile, dozens of Palestinians from Jerusalem were planting trees in nearby al-Tur, when Israeli police dispersed the gathering, threatening arrest.







An Israeli police spokesman did not answer calls seeking comment.

Land Day 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.
