Violent clashes rocked the Palestinian city of Bethlehem in the West Bank, Tuesday, where one Palestinian was killed and more than 60 others injured. Earlier on Tuesday, two passengers were killed and several wounded in a suspected Palestinian gun and knife attack aboard a bus in East Jerusalem. The two assailants were killed in the attack, with one being overpowered and shot by a security guard, while the other was shot by police from outside the bus after he had locked the vehicle's doors. At least 29 Palestinians - including 8 children - have been killed since the start of October, with more than 1,900 left injured, according to Palestinian Authority health ministry data. In the same period, four Israelis have been killed and 67 injured.
