IDF forces arrested two Palestinian Saturday evening who were caught throwing stones at a vehicle near the Arab village of Kabalan south of Nablus, Army Radio reported.

IDF forces detained the two Palestinians for questioning. No one was injured in the attack.

Earlier, Palestinians near the village of Hussan west of Bethlehem also threw rocks at an Israeli vehicle, causing no injuries or damages.

The rock throwing follows an weekend of heightened tensions after a Palestinian was shot near the Kalandia border crossing, later dying at a Palestinian hospital of his wounds. His funeral sparked violent clashes between Palestinians who threw Molotov cocktails and stones at IDF soldiers stationed near the village of Al Ram, who responded by firing rubber bullets and tear gas canisters.
