Police say two Border Police officers were lightly hurt after Palestinians hurled an explosive device and rocks at troops in the West Bank’s Aida Refugee Camp, near Rachel’s Tomb on the outskirts of Jerusalem.

One of the officers, who was hit by the explosion, is taken to Jerusalem’s Shaare Zedek medical center. The other officer is treated at the scene, police say.

A Border Police spokesman says the group of some 40 Palestinians also hurled stones and marbles at troops.

“Border Police troops responded with riot dispersal means,” the spokesman says.
