Soldiers alleged they threw stones at an Israeli police car in the Old City, which is under heavy Israeli security control.
Israeli forces also placed two military checkpoints on two major roads north of Hebron.
In Jerusalem, Israeli bulldozers demolished four Bedouin tents containing 40 people and several cattle barns belonging to the Bedouin al-Jahaleen family living in al-Sheikh Anbar neighborhood east of Jerusalem.
Locals told Wafa reporters that the Israeli soldiers attacked and severely beat the owners, Mohamad and Khader Awdeh al-Sa’adi, and closed the area to prevent anyone from going in or out.
Israeli forces also entered the central West Bank village of Bi’lin, west of Ramallah, and demolished its international solidarity center, which was built six months ago by the Popular Committee Against the Wall and Settlements. The soldiers did not warn about the demolition beforehand. Wooden seats and trash containers were confiscated.
Activists claimed the structure was being used as a sort of watchpost to protect the nearby natural reserve of Abu Limon.
Bil’in citizens and international solidarity activists have been protesting the presence of the wall isolating the village for seven years.
