RAS KARKAR: Israeli security forces fired tear gas and rubber bullets on Friday at Palestinians protesting against land seizures for Jewish settlements in the occupied West Bank, among the disputes stalling peace efforts.

Around a dozen of the hundreds of Palestinians gathered in the village of Ras Karkar were injured, witnesses said.

An Israeli police spokesman had no immediate comment.

The other Palestinian territory, Gaza, was largely quiet on Friday despite expected border demonstrations, a weekly event in the Hamas-controlled enclave since March 30.

An Israeli court broke new judicial ground on Tuesday by giving legal recognition to a Jewish settlement built without Israeli government authorisation on privately owned Palestinian land.

Meanwhile, Germany will provide additional funding for the UN’s Palestinian refugee agency and has appealed to other EU members to do the same following a cut in US aid, its foreign ministry said on Friday.

German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas said in a letter to European Union colleagues that the agency was a “key factor for stability” in the Middle East whose breakdown could entail an “uncontrollable chain reaction.”
