Photo taken outside of Ofer Prison. The prison is an Israeli Prison for Palestinians and is located on the edge of Ramallah. The IDF were in full force to stop the Nakba Day demonstration; they fired rubber coated steel bullets, rubber bullets, high velocity tear gas canisters, regular tear gas grenades, flash grenades, and fired chemical spray. The Palestinian protesters threw rocks (often with slings), and through the occasional glass bottle filled with paint. The Palestinians also set tires and sticks on fire. There were quite a few injuries throughout the day.
