Oct. 16, 2013 7:21 A.M. (Updated: Oct. 17, 2013 7:17 A.M.)
HEBRON (Ma'an) -- Locals of Beit Awwa, a West Bank village in the Hebron district, reported that Palestinians set fire to an Israeli watchtower Monday during clashes with the Israeli army.

The clashes broke out when the Israeli army entered the village. Palestinians threw stones and Israeli forces fired tear-gas grenades, locals said, adding that dozens of villagers suffered from tear gas inhalation.

Additionally, Palestinians threw Molotov cocktails at an Israeli watchtower located near the village, burning the watchtower and reportedly injuring Israeli soldiers.

The extent of the damage done to the watchtower and the number of injuries are not immediately clear.

A spokesman for the Israeli army did not respond to a request for comment.
