BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Israeli soldiers and Palestinians clashed on Wednesday in the village of Tuqu, southeast of Bethlehem, locals and Israel's army said.

Locals told Ma'an that Israeli forces fired rubber bullets and tear gas canisters at Palestinians who were throwing stones at settler cars.

An Israeli civilian was injured by a stone, they added.

An Israeli army spokesman said that "at approximately 1 p.m. Palestinians hurled rocks at a vehicle, injuring an Israeli child. He was evacuated to hospital and soldiers searched the area for suspects. Palestinians hurled rocks at the IDF soldiers, who responded with riot dispersal means."
