The army stopped a Palestinian near Bethlehem with three homemade bombs and four Molotov cocktails on Sunday night, as violence continued in the West Bank for the sixth day.

Earlier in the day, Palestinians threw stones at an Israeli bus outside Halhoul, near Hebron, damaging the vehicle, the IDF said.

Near Bethlehem in the afternoon, 30 Palestinians threw stones and rolled burning tires at soldiers in El-Khader.

Soldiers responded with riot dispersal methods.

Separately, Jewish extremists punctured tires in the Palestinian village of Tukua, near the Tekoa settlement, and scrawled graffiti on the wall of two mosques in an apparent “price tag” attack, the IDF said.

Among the Hebrew phrases that were found was the words, “Revenge for Adele,” the army said, in reference to two-year-old Adele Biton, who was seriously wounded last month when Palestinians threw rocks on Route 5 in Samaria, causing an accident.
