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.

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.
