Israeli soldiers clash with Palestinian protesters
Israeli soldiers are clashing with dozens of stone-throwing Palestinian youths in the biblical West Bank town of Hebron.
The violence comes a day after Israel's prime minister enraged Palestinians by adding a disputed Hebron shrine to Israel's list of national heritage sites.
Hebron merchants shuttered their stores to protest the decision, and some 100 youths are throwing rocks and bottles at soldiers. The Israeli army says one soldier has been lightly wounded, while Palestinians say three protesters are suffering from tear-gas inhalation.
Hebron is one of the most volatile cities in the West Bank. Several hundred ultranationalist Jewish settlers live in heavily guarded enclaves in the midst of some 170,000 Palestinians.
