35 Palestinians hurt in West Bank clashes with IDF

Palestinian medical officials say some 35 people have been wounded in clashes with the Israeli military near the West Bank city of Hebron.

The Palestinian Red Crescent says live fire struck about 10 people Tuesday after rioters threw big rocks at Israeli troops. It says the 25 others were struck by rubber bullets.

The Israeli military says its forces were on an overnight operation in the Fawwar refugee camp to uncover militant weaponry and ammunition.

The military says it fired toward the riot’s main instigators to try to prevent escalation.
