Israeli security forces arrested at least eight Palestinians in riots in southern Jerusalem and in the West Bank.

Near Armon Hanatsiv, a Jewish neighbourhood in eastern Jerusalem, Palestinians on Friday hurled stones at Israeli vehicles, hitting four cars. No one was hurt and police dispersed the protesters.

South of Armon Hanatsiv, dozens staged a rally near Beit Safafa, a village split between the western and eastern sectors of the city. The demonstrators were protesting the construction of a new road leading to West Bank settlements. Police arrested eight people there, according to Army Radio.

Palestinians hurled rocks in Hebron, Bili’in and Beituniya. In Hebron, the stones hit the home of a settler family but no one was hurt.

The riots in Bili’in broke out after a march attended by Palestinian Salam Fayyad marking “eight years of resistance” to the security barrier which Israel has erected in the West Bank.
