Clashes broke out between Israeli military forces and dozens of young Palestinians in the West Bank city of Ramallah on Sunday afternoon, eyewitnesses and Palestinian media reported.
According to the reports, six Palestinians were wounded by Israeli military fire and two more were injured as a result of tear gas inhalation. Israeli troops circled a pharmacy in a residential neighborhood, reports said, and detained three Palestinians.
While clashes between Palestinians and Israeli forces are common in the West Bank, the most violent altercations in the past several months took place along the Israel-Gaza border. During clashes on Friday, seven Palestinians, including a 12-year-old boy, were killed by IDF fire.
Earlier this month, a 40-year-old Israeli living in the West Bank was killed in a stabbing attack that took place at a shopping mall near the Gush Etzion junction. The victim was identified as Ari Fuld, a father of four from the settlement of Efrat.
