VIDEO: Israeli Army and Palestinians clash on streets

Israeli troops fired tear gas at stone-throwing Palestinian protesters on Tuesday as clashes continued in the West Bank town of Bethlehem.

The clashes erupted after the funeral of a 13-year-old boy killed during clashes with the Israeli military.

Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas said on Tuesday he had no interest in an "escalation" of violence and is ready to talk with Israel.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu warned on Monday that he will use a "strong hand" to quell violent Palestinian protests and deadly attacks.
