Israeli troops scuffled with Palestinian youths in the West Bank city of Hebron as they hunted for the suspected killer of an Israeli soldier.
The 20-year-old had been shot in a suspected sniper attack when he was on patrol during a Jewish festival.
Tension has flared in the area following both Sunday’s killing and the death of another Israeli soldier in a separate incident in northern West Bank a few days earlier.
There have also been clashes near Jerusalem’s Old city walls.
A week ago a Palestinian militant was killed in a confrontation with Israeli forces, the fourth Palestinian fatality since July when stalled US-brokered peace talks resumed.
Israeli cabinet ministers have urged the country’s prime minister to rethink negotiations with the Palestinian Authority following the deaths of the soldiers.
