A clash between Palestinian rock throwers and the IDF near Psagot resulted in one rioter sustaining a gunshot wound on Sunday, Palestinian reports said.

An Army spokeswoman said an IDF unit was in the area to preempt disturbances, when it spotted several Palestinians hurling rocks at traffic on the road, and at security forces.

Soldiers attempted to arrest one of the rioters, but he continued attacking them, and disregarded verbal warnings for him to stop, the spokeswoman added.

Soldiers then fired a shot at the legs of the rioter, though they did not identify a hit, she said. Later, Palestinian reports said the man had been injured by a gunshot wound, though the IDF could not confirm that.
