The clashes in Bethlehem on Christmas day came as a response to the recent releasing of  video footage of Jewish zealots mocking the death by arson of a Palestinian baby by settlers last summer.

Also on Friday, a Palestinian man Hani Whadab, 22,  was shot dead by Israeli soldiers east of Gaza City in clashes with occupation troops, a spokesman for the Palestinian health ministry said.
