Several Palestinian rioters were shot in the legs during clashes with the IDF at two West Bank locations on Thursday.

At Hebron's Hassam Shoter checkpoint, some 300 Palestinians hurled rocks at soldiers, who responded with tear gas canisters and Ruger rifle rounds. Three rioters were shot, an army spokeswoman said.

At Kikar Ayosh near Eil Bira, which is in the Ramallah area, some 150 Palestinians threw rocks at soldiers, who responded with Ruger rifle rounds and rubber bullets. A few rioters were hit by IDF rounds in that incident, though the precise number is unclear, the army added.
