Two explosives were thrown in the direction of Rachel's Tomb on Wednesday evening, Army Radio reported, injuring a female tourist. The woman was lightly injured by shrapnel, but did not require a trip to the hospital.

150 Palestinians were clashing with security forces in the area, the report added.

The clashes began after Shin Bet announced the arrest of Amir Brakhat, a Nablus resident suspect of terrorist activity. Brakhat was released from Israeli prison in 2011 as part of the Gilad Schalit exchange.
