Two IDF soldiers and a border policeman were injured lightly on Friday afternoon when a group of about 40 Palestinian protesters threw stones in their direction in the northern West Bank town of Kafr Qaddum.
One of the injured Israelis was taken to Beilinson hospital in Petah Tikva for treatment of a broken hand.
IDF and border patrol forces dispersed the protesters with stun grenades.
Earlier Friday, Palestinians threw stones at several Israeli vehicles traveling on Route 60, the West Bank’s main artery, and some 200 protesters gathered and hurled stones at IDF forces southwest of Bethlehem.
One woman suffered a light head injury when a stone thrown at her vehicle shattered a window, sending shards flying. Damage was caused to five other vehicles in the area.
On Thursday, a group of IDF soldiers on patrol in Hebron clashed with some 250 Palestinians after trying to arrest a Palestinian policeman in Hebron.
One soldier was punched in the face by a Palestinian policeman in the divided city. Over 20 Palestinians were injured in the clashes.
The incident reportedly started when the soldiers attempted to arrest a Palestinian policeman. Other policemen and civilians jumped into the fray and threw stones at the soldiers.
