A mob of Palestinian Authority Arabs rioted near the Samaria-based PA capital of Ramallah, not far from the Jewish community of Beit El, north of Jerusalem, on Friday afternoon.
Several hundred rioters hurled rocks, firebombs (Molotov cocktails) and fireworks at IDF soldiers who at first used standard riot control methods in attempts to contain the mob.
When that failed, IDF soldiers allegedly opened fire, according to the Palestinian Authority’s Bethlehem-based Ma’an News agency. It is not clear how many of the rioters were wounded, if any.
