Palestinian youth clash with Israeli troops in Bethlehem Christmas day

Palestinian youth clashed with Israeli security forces near the West Bank city of Bethlehem Friday.

Palestinian youth gathered near the city, where they threw stones and molotov cocktails at Israeli security forces. 

The security forces fired stun and smoke grenades toward the demonstrators.

Almost daily stabbings, shootings and car-rammings by Palestinians have killed 20 Israelis and a U.S. citizen since October. 

Israeli forces or armed civilians have killed at least 124 Palestinians, 76 of whom authorities described as assailants.

Others died in clashes with security forces.
