Two IDF soldiers were injured Friday as Palestinian Authority resident Arabs rioted in Judea and Samaria (Shomron).

One soldier was hit by a rock thrown during riots near Bethlehem. He was taken to hospital with light wounds.

Earlier in the day terrorists opened fire on Israeli civilians on Highway 55 in Samaria. The attack did not cause injury.

On Friday afternoon a Border Police officer was lightly wounded in a riot near Kfar Kadum in Samaria.

In yet another riot, near Nebi Salah, an estimated 50 Arab men hurled stones at IDF soldiers. The troops responded with non-violent means of riot dispersal.
