Around 300 Druze residents in the Golan Heights, near the Israeli-Syrian border, protested on Wednesday against the construction of wind turbines on agricultural land planned by the Energix Group.

According to Israel Police, Energix legally bought the right to use the land from the owners, and the first two days of construction went off without demonstrations.

However, following reports of a planned protest, police increased the amount of officers guarding the site, fearing violence.

During the demonstrations, clashes broke out between the demonstrators and the police, with protesters throwing rocks towards officers, and police retaliating with riot dispersal equipment, injuring four policemen and 10 protesters, according to Israel Police.

Eight protesters were arrested during the clashes. The construction continued uninterrupted.
