Israeli Troops Critically Wound Palestinian Protester on West Bank

A Palestinian man who hurled a firebomb at an Israeli car near a settlement was critically injured by soldiers who fired back at him, in one of several violent clashes in the West Bank and Jerusalem.

Passengers escaped injury in the incident Thursday night near the settlement of Itamar in Samaria, where Israel Defense Forces troops lay in ambush for terrorists, the news site nrg.co.il reported. The passengers were not hurt. The wounded Palestinian was taken to a hospital in Nablus, the report said. Another Palestinian was apprehended nearby and is suspected of being involved in the attack.

There has been a rise in violent clashes between Palestinians and Israelis in and around Jerusalem.

On Friday morning, Border Police officers used crowd-dispersal means on rioting Palestinians near the Lions’ Gate in the Old City of Jerusalem, nrg reported. Police also cordoned off streets and evacuated the light rail station near the Machane Yehuda market in the city’s west because of a suspicious object.

In Ras al-Amud in east Jerusalem, Palestinians set on fire an Israeli bus on Thursday night. Locals said that the bus, belonging to the Egged company, went up in flames after youths targeted it while it traveled through the neighborhood, the Palestinian Ma’an news agency reported. No one was hurt in the attack, according to Israel’s Army Radio.

The radio said the bus was pelted with stones, forcing the driver, who is Palestinian, to leave it parked and call police. It was set ablaze after the driver parked it and left.
