Two Arab rioters were injured in clashes with Israeli security forces near the town of Bet El, in the Binyamin Region north of Jerusalem.

Footage from the site shows IDF soldiers, border police and undercover officers taking on the rioters, opening fire and arresting several attackers.

The riots came amid a violent escalation by Palestinians Wednesday, including stabbing attacks in Jerusalem and the southern Israeli city of Kiryat Gat, and a violent mob attack on Israeli motorists south of the capital.
