Clashes broke out on Tuesday between Israeli troops and scores of Palestinian youths who went out to protest Israel's ongoing war on the Gaza Strip.

Israel's police said that scores of Palestinian youths had hurled stones and fireworks at police men in Jabel Mukaber, a predominantly Arab neighborhood in southern East Jerusalem.

It added on its website that policemen used the necessary means to disperse the crowd.

An eyewitness, meanwhile, said that other clashes erupted between Israeli troops and Palestinian youths in Isawiya, an Arab village in East Jerusalem.

"The youths pelted the Israeli troops with stones and empty glass bottles in return for firing teargas at them," the eyewitness said.

The West Bank has seen several pro-Gaza protests as the embattled territory has been pounded by Israeli attacks, which left 1216 people dead and 7000 injured, since July 7.

Israel claims that its military offensive aims at undermining the ability of Gaza's resistance movements to launch rocket attacks from Gaza.

At least 56 Israelis, including 53 soldiers and three civilians, have also been killed since the hostilities began.
