Youths attack Israeli forces with Molotov cocktails near Ramallah

RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- Palestinian youths late Tuesday attacked Israeli forces with Molotov cocktails near the illegal settlement of Geva Binyamin in the occupied West Bank district of Ramallah.

Locals told Ma'an that Israeli soldiers responded by firing live ammunition and tear gas at the Palestinian youths.

Earlier in the evening the soldiers had erected a checkpoint and stopped passing vehicles, preventing a number from passing to Nablus.

Israeli forces regularly restrict the movement of Palestinians living under military occupation, with impromptu "flying checkpoints" set up by forces across the West Bank at times numbering in the hundreds.

Road closures and restrictions often lead local Palestinian youth to protest with stone-throwing and at times the use of homemade explosive devices.
