'Palestinian police' attack IDF in Hebron, riot ensues

A group of 'Palestinian police' attacked a routine IDF patrol in Hebron on Thursday afternoon. Hundreds of rock throwing 'Palestinians' joined in and a riot ensued.
The Palestinian police officers and the IDF soldiers became involved in mutual pushing, and one of the Palestinian officers threw a punch. Soldiers used stun grenades to distance the PA officers. At that stage, a 250-strong crowd rapidly formed and began rioting and hurling rocks, before being dispersed by the small IDF force.

"This is a serious incident. It is being investigated by the army," the spokeswoman said.

Army sources say the fact that Palestinian police confronted an IDF force is a worrying development.

The IDF has refused to disclose further details due to the ongoing investigation.

The Ma'an Palestinian News agency said five Palestinians were injured in the disturbances and taken a Hebron hospital.
What could go wrong?
