IDF commander lightly injured by Palestinians outside Jerusalem

An IDF commander was injured lightly in the leg Sunday as he responded to an incident in which a group of 60 masked Palestinians threw stones at the road, just outside of the east Jerusalem neighborhood of Har Homa, by the checkpoint leading to the West Bank Tekoa settlement.
An Israeli vehicle was damaged by the stones, according to an IDF spokesman. The IDF used non-lethal means to disperse the rioters.
