Palestinians: Dozens wounded in clashes with Israeli troops

Palestinian medical officials say some 35 people have been wounded in clashes with the Israeli military near the West Bank city of Hebron.

The Palestinian Red Crescent says live fire struck about 10 people Tuesday after rioters threw big rocks at Israeli troops. It says the 25 others were struck by rubber bullets.

The Israeli military says its forces were on an overnight operation in the Fawwar refugee camp to uncover militant weaponry and ammunition.

The military says it fired toward the riot's main instigators to try to prevent escalation.

The military often conducts raids against suspected militants.

Palestinian attacks have killed 34 Israelis and two visiting Americans since September. Over 205 Palestinians have been killed, most of them identified as attackers by Israel.
