JERUSALEM (Ma'an) -- Twelve Palestinians including three journalists were injured Wednesday in clashes with Israeli forces in East Jerusalem, witnesses said.

Locals said residents took to the streets to protest the kidnapping and killing of a 16-year-old Palestinian the same morning.

Clashes broke out between Palestinians and Israeli forces in the Shufat neighborhood, with police firing rubber-coated bullets and tear gas at protesters, witnesses said.

Police told AFP that some 200 Palestinians threw stones at police.

Palestine TV reporter Kristine Rinawi and cameramen Ali Yasin and Ahmad Gharabla were among those reported injured in the clashes.

Israeli police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld wrote on Twitter: "Extra police units deployed in Jerusalem to deal with disturbances in the Bet Hanina area. Damage caused to light rail station by rioters."

Rosenfeld did not answer calls seeking further details.

Early Wednesday, 16-year-old Muhammad Hussein Abu Khdeir was kidnapped from the Shufat neighborhood and later found dead in a forest in a possible act of revenge for three Israeli teens who were kidnapped and killed in the West Bank.

The teens' bodies were found Monday, sparking calls for revenge.
