Kopty, spokeswoman for a group that coordinates "popular resistance" in the Palestinian territories, was speaking after the weekly demonstration in the Palestinian village of Nabi Saleh.
"The army arrived together with border guards equipped with handcuffs to arrest" demonstrators, she said.
The Israeli police and military said they were looking into the report.
Since 2009, Nabi Saleh has been the site of weekly demonstrations staged by Palestinian villagers and Israeli and international activists who oppose encroachment by a neighbouring Jewish settlement.
