Dozens of Palestinian youths clashed with IDF soldiers in Hebron on Tuesday for a second day running. The clashes were part of a Palestinian reaction to a cabinet decision on Sunday to designate the Cave of the Patriarchs in Hebron and the Tomb of Rachel in Bethlehem as national heritage sites.

Rioters hurled stones and burned tires in central Hebron and in the ancient quart of the city. Soldiers responded with crowd dispersal means. No injuries were reported on either side.
