The violence came a day after Israeli soldiers shot dead a Palestinian motorist at a military checkpoint near the illegal Jewish settlement of Mevo Dotan, in the occupied West Bank.
Tor Wennesland, the United Nations Mideast peace envoy, last week said he was “alarmed” by the recent escalation of violence on both sides, saying the situation had become “volatile.”
