Protesters threw stones, Molotov cocktails, cinderblocks, and even an improvised explosive towards the Israeli forces. Two soldiers were lightly wounded, and were evacuated to a Jerusalem hospital. The forces responded with riot dispersal means, controlling the scene until the demolition was completed.

Earlier in April, the demolition of the Qabatiya homes of the two terrorists who killed Border Policewoman Hadar Cohen in February. A violent demonstration developed, with the Israeli forces using riot dispersal means to keep things under control then as well.
