A scuffle broke out Saturday during a Land Day procession in Sakhnin. Several dozen protesters who support Syrian President Bashar Assad assaulted an Al-Jazeera reporter and his crew.

 

The rioters hurled water bottles at the journalists claiming they were fabricating reports about the situation in Syria. The scuffle quickly spread to include other protesters. Three people were lightly injured including a Channel 1 journalist who sustained a minor head injury and was treated at a local clinic.

"This is a struggle between the Palestinian children and the State," said MK Hanin Zoabi (Balad). "The State has explicitly expressed that its aim is the judaization of the land and this will see some of the citizens who were here before the state was established into enemies."

 

She further added, "The State is being hostile and aggressive; it's a war for our existence. When one confiscates the land and prevents us from making a living off of it and building over it, it turns me into an enemy."
