Gaza Rockets Fired at South Israel, as Palestinians Clash With IDF in West Bank

Palestinian protesters gather in Hebron and near Yitzhar settlement ahead of prisoner's funeral, hurling rocks at Israeli forces; mortar shell explodes in south Israel, causing no casualties; two Palestinian youths killed by IDF fire late Wednesday after throwing firebombs at troops.

Thousands of mourners turned out on Thursday for the funerals of three Palestinians, including two teenagers killed by Israel Defense Forces' gunfire in some of the worst violence in the West Bank in years.
