Clashes erupted between Palestinian youths and the Israeli army in the West Bank town of Bethlehem on Thursday night.
The clashes erupted near Rachel's tomb, a Jewish holy site, near the entrance to Bethlehem.
Israel launched a new offensive on Tuesday against the Hamas militant group in Gaza to end rocket fire from Gaza that has reached deeper into the Jewish state and intensified in recent weeks amid tensions over the killing of three Israeli teenagers and the apparent revenge killing of a Palestinian teenager.
More than 85 people have been killed so far, including dozens of civilians.
The offensive has set off the heaviest fighting between Israel and Hamas since an eight-day battle in November 2012.
