The commander of an IDF combat unit was injured on Friday by stones thrown by Palestinian Arabs during a riot in the town of Silwad, near the West Bank  community of Ofra, the 0404 website reported.

A rock hit the unit commander in his face, causing him to temporarily lose consciousness and breaking his teeth. After he was hit, the solder was transported to a nearby hospital for treatment. His injuries do not appear to be serious, according to the report.

Other reports indicated that there were at least 12 other stone-throwing incidents that occurred today, where Palestinian rock-throwers targeted both Israeli civilians and IDF forces in Judea, Samaria and Jerusalem, 0404 said
