IDF Chief of General Staff Lt.-Gen. Benny Gantz arrived at Kalandia on Friday as violent clashes erupted between dozens of masked Palestinian activists and IDF security forces.

The Palestinians had gathered at the Kalandia checkpoint, which is just north of Jerusalem, in what police expected to be a tense day with activists who had come out support Palestinian Authority Mahmoud Abbas's speech at the United Nations later in the day.

Gantz - who arrived with division commander Brig.-Gen. Nitzan Alon - came to Kalandia to inspect how the IDF was carrying out its security operations, Israeli media said.

The IDF forces fired tear gas in order to disperse the group of Palestinians who were throwing stones in their direction.
