Violent clashes across West Bank

BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Clashes broke out Friday across the occupied West Bank, as Palestinian demonstrators hurled rocks and Israeli soldiers fired tear gas and stun grenades to disperse protests.

In Hebron, clashes broke out after Friday prayers on Shalaleh Street in the center of the city, a Ma’an reporter said.

Dozens of Palestinians threw stones and empty bottles at Israeli settlements and Israeli forces responded by firing tear gas and stun grenades.

An Israeli army spokeswoman told Ma'an that some 250 Palestinians hurled rocks at security forces.

In the Ramallah area, Palestinians were injured and others suffered tear-gas inhalation.

Palestinians threw rocks at Israeli soldiers and burned tires outside Ofer detention center, in Qalandiya refugee camp and in al-Ram near Ramallah.
