Violence continued between Palestinian protesters and soldiers from the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) near a military checkpoint at the northern entrance to Bethlehem, in the central West Bank on Thursday, during a demonstration in support of Palestinian prisoners on hunger strike in Israeli jails.
The protesters smashed bins, set various objects alight and threw stones at the IDF officers, who in turn fired rubber bullets and deployed tear gas to disperse the demonstrators.
