Tension builds in Israel and the West Bank with three new stabbing attacks on Israelis reported on Saturday, and the funeral for a young Palestinian stone-thrower killed by Israeli forces in Nablus.
Israel's military said about 100 people converged on Joseph's tomb in the Palestinian city of Nablus. They were pushed back by Palestinian security forces, but not before setting parts of it ablaze.
In small Palestinian towns ignored by most news outlets, citizen journalists have grabbed cameras to document clashes with Israeli soldiers.
The two Palestinians — one was 15 years old — were killed by Israeli forces Friday amid escalating tensions over raids in the West Bank.
The manhunt for the teens led to raids and hundreds of arrests — including of prisoners who had been released in exchange for Gilad Shalit.
Israeli security forces said they arrested a man wearing a bomb belt in the West Bank — the first suspected suicide attacker since 2008.
