Israeli soldiers fire tear gas at Bethlehem youths

BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Israeli soldiers fired rounds of tear gas at youths protesting in Bethlehem late Saturday, a Ma'an reporter said.

Youths threw rocks at an Israeli watchtower near Rachels Tomb, while soldiers fired multiple gas canisters into Bethlehem from behind a section of Israel's separation wall.

The clashes took place near Azza and Aida refugee camps.

Dozens of Palestinians were injured and at least 10 arrested on Saturday during West Bank demonstrations against Israeli attacks on the Gaza Strip.
