JERUSALEM — A Palestinian medic says a 24-year-old demonstrator was shot in the stomach during clashes between Jewish settlers and Palestinians in the West Bank village of Kusra. The Israeli military could not immediately confirm the report.

The medic, who says the demonstrator is in serious condition, requested anonymity, because he was not authorized to speak to media.

A military spokeswoman says about 150 Palestinians and 25 Jewish settlers hurled rocks at each other Saturday, and Israeli forces tried to disperse them.

The clashes come amid mounting tension in the West Bank where there has been a rise in demonstrations against Israel's policies toward Palestinians, and in support Palestinian prisoners who are conducting hunger strikes in Israeli jails.
