Hebron University student catches fire while hurling a Molotov cocktail at Israeli security forces in Hebron; meanwhile, IDF notes decline in clashes in the West Bank.

Photos of a Palestinian student from Hebron University who accidentally set himself on fire after trying to hurl a Molotov cocktail at Israeli security forces have been making the rounds on social media over the past 24 hours.

 

 

The accident happened during clashes with IDF and Border Police troops, when Palestinian rioters blocked the northern entrance to Hebron with large rocks and tires.

 

Several other protesters tried to help the young men, but his current condition remains unclear.

A decline in rioting has been noted on Tuesday in Hebron, the Beitunia checkpoint near Ramallah, and at Rachel's Tomb in Bethlehem.

 

Most of the terrorists who committed the attacks over the past two weeks have been residents of East Jerusalem, rather than Palestinians living in the West Bank.
