The IDF has released new footage showing undercover fighters of the elite Duvdevan counter-terrorism unit breaking up a violent riot near Rachel's Tomb in Bethlehem.

Rioters can be seen hurling rocks and firebombs at Israeli forces, as undercover agents move in on the instigators without being noticed.

Suddenly the rioters turn tail and run, as forces draw pistols and pounce on their targets, swiftly ending the violence.

Israel's elite undercover special forces have gained a fierce reputation during the recent Arab violence, breaking up riots within seconds time and time again.
