BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Heavy clashes took place late Friday between local youths and Israeli forces in northern Bethlehem near Rachel's Tomb.

Israeli forces used stun grenades and tear gas grenades against protesters.

Clashes have taken place almost every night in the area for the last two weeks amid heightened tensions due to the ongoing Israeli assault on Gaza.
