BETHLEHEM, WEST BANK (CBS) - More than a hundred Palestinian protesters clashed with Israeli soldiers in the West Bank town of Bethlehem on Friday night.

The protesters, angry at Israel's military operation in Gaza, threw petrol bombs and stones at the soldiers.

They set fire to tires in the road and threw fireworks at a military watchtower.

Israeli soldiers responded with stun grenades and tear gas in an effort to disperse the demonstrators.

They even fired water cannons to try to break up the crowds.

Palestinian sources said one Palestinian man was taken to hospital with a bullet wound to the leg after being fired upon by an Israeli soldier.
