Israelis, Palestinians throw rocks, damage vehicles near Ramallah

No injuries reported in multiple separate incidents in the West Bank

Israelis threw stones at Palestinian cars Wednesday near Turmus Ayya, a village northeast of Ramallah. No injuries were reported in the incident, but two vehicles were damaged.

Two other incidents occurred on the same day in the Benjamin region of the central West Bank in which Palestinians hurled stones at Israeli vehicles and an Israeli bus was damaged. No injuries were
reported in the attacks.

The flare-ups followed an Israeli raid on a West Bank town Tuesday, in which IDF soldiers disguised themselves as vegetable vendors to seize members of a terror group, sparking intense clashes.

Residents in the town of Tamoun said youths tossed stones and bottles at Israeli troops, while the soldiers responded with rubber bullets.

Army officials said the operation was carried out to prevent a planned terror attack in the advanced stages, Israel Radio reported.

The Palestinian Ma’an news agency reported that 30 people were wounded from live fire and 100 suffered injuries from tear gas. Israeli reports and the Associated Press put the number of injured in the single digits.

Two Israeli troops were lightly injured, according to army officials.

The clashes lasted from the morning to the late afternoon, when the soldiers left the town.

Times of Israel staff contributed to this report.
