According to Palestinians from Burin in the West Bank, IDF soldiers entered the village, fired rubber coated bullets and tear gas and even live ammunition at residents. Palestinians on the scene claim settlers uprooted 100 olive trees and Palestinian medics reported that a 16-year old was wounded in his leg and 20 people suffered tear gas inhalation. There are also reports that a mosque was set alight as a result of tear gas and that it has since been put out. (Haaretz)
