An Israeli woman and her two children were wounded in the West Bank on Friday after Palestinians threw a firebomb at a passing car, the Israeli military said.
A 4-year-old girl sustained burns on 35 percent of her body while her sister and mother were lightly hurt. Both victims were taken to a hospital, Israel's Haaretz daily reported.
The firebombing is the latest in a month-long wave of violence and comes just hours after an Israeli human rights group released security footage showing Israeli soldiers beating and kicking a Palestinian man for several minutes as he lies curled up in a defensive position.
The group, B'Tselem, says the man required medical treatment and was detained for five days after soldiers alleged he had thrown stones. It adds that he was only released after police viewed the security camera footage.
Israel's military says an initial inquiry into the footage shows the soldiers "did not act in accordance with the standards."
Also Friday, officials say a Palestinian stabbed a soldier in the West Bank and was shot by troops. Both were taken for medical treatment.
Meanwhile, prayers at Jerusalem’s most holy site have ended peacefully after Israel announced Muslims of all ages could attend the weekly Friday prayers at the Muslim-run site.
Friday's lifting of age restrictions on Muslim worshippers appeared to be part of an Israeli attempt to ease tensions. Over the past few weeks, Israel had barred younger Muslims — seen by police as the main potential trouble-makers — from entering the compound. Muslims view age restrictions as part of the perceived Israeli attempt to step up its control.
Widespread Palestinian perceptions that Israel is trying to expand its presence at the Muslim-run site have led to clashes there that quickly spread to other parts of Jerusalem, as well as the West Bank and Gaza Strip.
Israeli has repeatedly denied it is trying to change long-standing understandings under which Jews are allowed to visit, but not pray at the shrine. Israel has accused Palestinian political and religious leaders of lying and inciting to violence.
Palestinians say their fears have been fueled by a rise in visits to the shrine by Jewish activists demanding prayer rights, including senior members of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's coalition government.
Ten Israelis have been killed in that time, mostly in knife attacks. On the Palestinian side, 48 people have been killed by Israeli fire, including 27 said by Israel to be attackers and the rest in clashes with Israeli forces.
Netanyahu met Thursday in Berlin with U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry to find ways to ease tensions over the holy site. Kerry is also expected to hold talks in Jordan this weekend with King Abdullah II, the custodian of the site, and Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas.
