Watch: Undercover IDF soldiers combat rioters during disturbances in West Bank

Since this afternoon, Israel Border Police and IDF forces have been dealing with a number of riots throughout the West Bank. As part of several operations, IDF undercover soldiers assimilated within the crowds, who burned tires, blocked routes and threw rocks at security forces. The undercover soldiers eventually led to the arrests of three masked rioters, who actively participated in the outbreaks.

Despite the fact that the prayer services at the Temple Mount ended relatively quietly this afternoon (Friday), Israel Border Police and IDF forces have been combatting numerous disturbances and riots throughout the West Bank and along the border with Gaza.

As part of several undercover operations within the West Bank, IDF undercover soldiers assimilated into the Palestinian crowds, who were burning tires, blocking roads and throwing rocks at Israeli security forces. The undercover soldiers eventually led to the arrests of three masked Palestinian rioters, who played crucial roles in the participation of the disturbances.

As reported earlier today on JOL, Arab media outlets reported that a Palestinian protester was apparently killed by IDF gunfire in response to riots in Gaza. According to another Arab report, two Palestinians were injured during a different riot in the West Bank from rubber bullets that IDF forces shot at them.
