Four soldiers were lightly injured as some 250 Palestinian protesters continued to riot in the West Bank town of Beitunia south of Ramallah on Wednesday, hurling stones at IDF soldiers, Israel Radio reported.

IDF forces used crowd dispersal against the protesters on the second straight day of protests held in solidarity with hunger-striking Palestinian prisoners.

Two of the injured soldiers were taken to the Hadassah hospital for treatment. Two Palestinians were also lightly wounded by rubber bullets and the Red Cross took them for treatment.
