Palestinian youths in Bethlehem clashed overnight between Wednesday and Thursday with Palestinian security forces and Israeli military, showing solidarity as fighting continued to rage in Gaza, displacing thousands more Palestinians in the battered territory.

Palestinian riot police were seen trying to prevent youths from getting near Israeli soldiers but eventually moved aside as scores of youths streamed into the streets throwing stones and firebombs at Israeli soldiers, who responded with tear gas and skunk water fired from a cannon.
