An Israeli soldier gesticulates in argument with a Palestinian policeman during an anti-settlement protest near the Kfar Yam Jewish settlement. A settler points his gun at a second Palestinian police officer. The stand-off was triggered when around 50 settlers erected a tent on a beach near Kfar Yam. Israeli troops fired rubber-coated bullets at protestors, but no injuries were reported.
