Clashes between Palestinians, Israeli forces spread

  • Several people have been injured in escalating clashes between Palestinian protesters and Israeli forces, with the violence spreading beyond the old city of Jerusalem.

    While eight Palestinians were shot, several Israeli police officers were inured in firebomb attacks, reports said.

    Earlier, an Israeli civilian was killed in the violence, which started several days ago.

    The protests intensified after Friday prayers in the West Bank, with Israeli security forces using water cannon and teargas to disperse the stone-throwers.
