Israeli firefighters are called to extinguish a car that was set on fire at the entrance to the Palestinian village of Funduk in the northern West Bank as part of a riot there, the military says.

Israeli security forces are working to break up the riot, according to the IDF.

No one was inside the car when it was set on fire, along the Route 55 highway. The military says the vehicle appears to be one that had been stolen.

The roadway was closed off temporarily, as firefighters worked to put out the blaze.
