The fighting in Gaza threatens to spark a wave of violence in the West Bank. Hundreds of Palestinian protesters on Monday clashed with security forces in several locations in the West Bank – at the Birzeit University, near the village of Furiq and around Camp Ofer.
The protesters hurled stones and Molotov cocktails at the security forces who responded with crowd-dispersal means.
Meanwhile, Rashid Tamimi, 31, who was hit by IDF fire during a Saturday protest against the IDF operation in Nabi Salah, has died of his wounds.
Tamimi suffered abdomen wounds and succumbed to his wounds on Monday. A Youtube video shows him being taken away from the scene of the protest.
