Protesters clashed with Israeli forces as they carried on several raids in the West Bank city of Bethlehem on Thursday in a manhunt for a driver who allegedly carried out a car-ramming attack against Israeli soldiers in West Jerusalem earlier on the day.
Footage shows the raids sparking clashes between the soldiers and dozens of Palestinians who met the platoon with rocks and other projectiles. The Israeli soldiers responded by firing rubber-coated bullets, sound bombs and tear gas canisters reportedly injuring several.
The Israeli army unit conducted raids in other neighbouring towns like Beit Jala where the vehicle involved in the attack was reportedly spotted by the Israeli army.
At least 12 soldiers were injured, one of them seriously, amid a suspected car-ramming attack in Jerusalem on early Thursday.
