Security forces clashed with Palestinians overnight Wednesday as they continued to target Hamas and scour the West Bank for the three kidnapped teens, Naftali Fraenkel, Eyal Yifrah, and Gil-Ad Shaer.

In Jenin, two Palestinians hurled explosives at soldiers and exchanged fire with them.



Soldiers shot and struck the attackers, whose condition was unknown. Clashes also broke out in Bethlehem and Bir Zeit, north of Ramallah.
