Palestinians clashed with the IDF near Bet Hagai in the Mount Hebron region of the West Bank on Sunday, and two rioters sustained injuries from Ruger rifle rounds fired by soldiers.

An army spokeswoman said some 200 Palestinians hurled rocks at the army in the area, and that soldiers responded with crowd dispersal means and Ruger rifle rounds.

Elsewhere in the West Bank, 100 Palestinians hurled firebombs and rocks at soldiers at Tulkarm. Soldiers responded by firing tear gas canisters and fired rubber bullets. Three rioters were wounded in the incident, apparently from tear gas inhalation.
