Five Israelis were lightly wounded and two vehicles were harmed near the village of Beit Omar in the West Bank after Palestinians threw stones at them on Friday evening, according to the IDF.

Several hundred Palestinians riot and threw stones at security personnel in Kaddum, west
of Nablus, on Friday, according to the IDF. Security forces employed riot dispersal means.
Earlier in the day a civilian vehicle was fired upon on Highway 55 in the West Bank, according to the IDF. There were no injuries. Security personnel searched the area.

Two settlers were detained, after they clashed with security personal who had arrived to help put out a fire set by Palestinians near the Har Bracha settlement, according to the IDF. 

Also on Friday, Border Police Spokesman Idal Iluz said that there were six clashes between Palestinians and security forces at six different locations in the West Bank, including Bi'lin, Nebi Salah, and Silwad, where a Border Police officer was lightly wounded by a rock-thrower and treated at the scene.

Border Police arrested one rock-thrower following that incident Iluz added.
