A protest of about 400 Palestinians in the West Bank square of Ramallah deteriorated into a violent riot Wednesday, as rioters burned tires and through Molotov cocktails and stones at security forces, according to the IDF Spokesperson's Unit.

In the course of the breach of order, Border Police arrested three rioters.

One of the rioters was arrested immediately after throwing a Molotov cocktail.

After the three were arrested, another protester threw rocks at the security forces. They fired at his lower body.

The suspects were interrogated by security forces. The IDF and security forces will continue to act in order to prevent terrorism, maintain security in the area and thwart terrorism, according to the IDF Spokesperson's Unit.
