JERUSALEM (AP) - Palestinians rallying in support of four hunger striking prisoners have clashed with Israeli forces in the West Bank and at a holy site in Jerusalem.
Israel's military said hundreds of Palestinians in Hebron and elsewhere in the West Bank threw rocks at soldiers who responded with tear gas. Palestinian emergency services said dozens were treated for tear gas inhalation and rubber bullet wounds.
In Jerusalem, dozens of Palestinians emerging from Friday prayers threw rocks at officers who responded with stun grenades, police said. That clash was at a key holy site known to Jews as the Temple Mount and to Muslims as the Noble Sanctuary.
Protests have been ongoing for about a week. Israel holds a few thousand Palestinians on charges ranging from rock throwing to deadly attacks.
