Palestinian youth in West Bank clash with Israeli military
Palestinian youth threw stones at Israeli soldiers who fired tear gas after protesters set fire to trees and tyres outside an Israeli military base early Wednesday (July 9) morning.
There were no immediate reports of injuries.
Palestinian youth set up barricades across a road leading to the base, setting alight tyres and other materials.
The protest started after at least 20 people were killed across Gaza on Tuesday (July 8), Palestinian officials said, by a bombardment Israel said may be just the start of a lengthy offensive against armed groups whose rockets reached unprecedented depths of its interior.
Israelis ran for cover as air-raid sirens sounded in the business capital Tel Aviv and the holy city of Jerusalem, both of which were hit in the previous Gaza war of November 2012.
Hamas said it also fired at rocket at northern Haifa, 140 km (88 miles) away, and though this was not confirmed Israel said a rocket had landed in Hadera, 100 km (60 miles) from Gaza - further than had previously been reached.
