13.30 Izbet alTabib.  We arrived at the protest tend. There were many local people and those from the area present, also ministers and workers of the authority many speakers. At 14.00 we went to the demonstration. Many young people and Palestinian flags. When we arrived at the western entrance to the village we stopped and the young people started to sing patriotic songs and to dance the debka. Suddenly army vehicles surrounded us from all sides and the soldiers alighted and started to short tear gas at us and closed the exits. The demonstration dispersed and people began to run away but the soldiers continued pursuing us and shooting tear gas. ( I still feel very bad from the effects).  We got into the car and rode in the direction of Azzun but ran into a checkpoint between Azzun and Izbet. The soldiers stopped us and checked the car and our IDs and we were freed
