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.
While the severity of terror attacks within the Green Line reached new highs on Tuesday, the IDF reported a drop of over 50 percent in the amount of rioting in the West Bank between October 9-12.
According to data released by the army on Tuesday, there were 19 points of friction in the West Bank on Monday. In comparison, on October 9 - at the height of clashes between Palestinians and Israeli troops - there were 52 points of friction.
The IDF started noting the number of friction point at the beginning of the current wave of violence - October 1, the day Eitam and Na'ama Henkin were murdered
near Itamar in the Samaria region.
According to the data, during the day Tuesday, there were four incidents of firebomb-throwing in the West Bank and 15 incidents of stone-throwing. This compared to 55 incidents of stone-throwing on October 6, and 22 incidents of firebomb-throwing.
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.
