The IDF injured seven Palestinians on Wednesday evening in Hebron when a riot broke out in the West Bank city of Hebron.

The IDF said that approximately fifty Palestinians demonstrated and threw stones at an IDF post situated between the Jewish settlement of the city and the rest of the Palestinian city. 

During its attempts to disperse the demonstrators using riot dispersal methods, seven Palestinians were injured, the army confirmed.

Earlier in the day, hundreds of Palestinians threw stones and lit fire crackers at police upon opening the main entrance to the Temple Mount.
