AP-ISRAEL-PALESTINIANS UPDATE


Reported by: Associated Press
Reported: Friday, July 4, 2014 2:30 PM EDT
JERUSALEM


A police spokeswoman in Jerusalem says at least 13 Israeli officers were injured by rock throwers today as police clashed with Palestinian protesters.

The confrontation came as thousands mourned at the funeral for an Arab teen who Palestinians say was killed by Israeli extremists in a revenge attack.

The Red Crescent says about 30 Palestinians were hurt by rubber bullets fired by Israeli forces. Dozens of others were treated for tear gas inhalation.

Police had beefed up security in and around Jerusalem, as the funeral coincided with the first Friday prayer services of the Muslim fasting month of Ramadan.

Tensions have been high since three Israeli teenagers, including one with U.S. citizenship, were abducted in the West Bank three weeks ago, sparking a huge manhunt that ended with the discovery of their bodies this week.

Also today, Palestinian militants fired rockets and mortars from the Gaza Strip into Israel. The Israelis later carried out several airstrikes on what they described as "Hamas terror targets" in Gaza.
