Israeli forces shot and wounded three Palestinians in the occupied West Bank on the ninth anniversary of Land Day, a traditional day of anti-Israel protests. Israel radio said the incident occurred when youths hurled rocks at Israeli border police at the Dahaisha refugee camp near Bethlehem. Land Day commemorates the fatal shooting by Israeli troops of six Israeli Arabs in 1976 during protests against expropriation of Arab land in the Galilee region.
