(JTA) — Palestinians and Israeli soldiers clashed in multiple locations in the West Bank.

Some 250 Palestinians demonstrated Friday near Beit Ummar, northwest of Hebron, according to Haaretz. Stones were thrown at Israeli security forces, who responded with stun grenades and tear gas, the newspaper reported.

Similar clashes also took place Friday in at least five other locations, including near the Palestinian villages of Nabi Saleh, Ni’lin and Bil’in, where there are weekly demonstrations against Israel’s security barrier and where exchanges of stone throwing and tear gas regularly occur.
