Ten Palestinian rioters were shot and injured by IDF Ruger rounds during a violent clash in Hebron on saturday.

An army spokeswoman said some 100 Palestinians launched a violent disturbance at the Hassam Shoter army position in the West Bank city, hurling rocks, Molotov cocktails, burning tires, and firing marbles from sling shots.

The IDF responded with Ruger rounds, aiming at the legs of rioters.

The condition of those wounded was not known to the army.

Earlier, thousands of Palestinians took part in funerals of terrorists killed in attacks on Israelis after Israel returned their bodies to the Palestinian Authority in Hebron.

In Jenin, Palestinians held a funeral procession for 18 year-old Mahmoud Talal Nazal who was shot by Israeli forces at a checkpoint earlier on Saturday.

Nazal was shot dead by Israeli Security Forces after attempting to stab Defense Ministry Crossings Authority guards at the Jalame checkpoint. There were no injuries among Israelis in the incident.

Following the incident, Brig.-Gen. (res.) Kamil Abu Rokon, head of the Crossings Authority, said, "The guard followed procedure exactly the way he was trained," adding the officer "identified the terrorist within seconds, attempted to halt his progress and subdued the suspect before he could harm" anyone in the area.

The attack came one week after a Palestinian youth posing as a candy vendor tried to stab a security guard at the Gilboa in the same location, before being shot dead.

The terrorist, Muhammad Zakarna, 16, also from Kabatiya, had approached the checkpoint with a carton of Krembo candies, the Defense Ministry said last week.

"He suddenly threw down the carton, pulled out a knife, and started running at the security personnel staffing the checking zone of the crossing," the ministry said. A guard spotted the terrorist running between cars waiting to cross the checkpoint and shot him from short range.
