Protests against Gaza violence erupt across the West Bank

From Ha'aretz: "Violent protests erupted in West Bank communities around Jerusalem, as Palestinians in Atarot, Har Adar and Qalandia began throwing rocks and Molotov cocktails at IDF troops in the region. Schools and shops across the West Bank shut down on Sunday to protest the Gaza violence, and spontaneous demonstrations took place throughout the territory at traditional flashpoints between Israeli troops and Palestinian youths, like checkpoints, watchtowers and patrol routes."
