HEBRON, West Bank (AFP) - Palestinians clashed with Israeli troops in the West Bank town of Hebron on Monday amid outrage over Israels plan to restore two flashpoint Jewish holy sites in the occupied territory. Dozens of youths burned tyres and hurled rocks at an Israeli military checkpoint in the city as troops fired tear gas and stun grenades, an AFP correspondent said. A strike closed down shops and schools. The Israeli military said one of its soldiers was lightly wounded during the scuffles. There were no reports of any Palestinians wounded, and the clashes had largely died down by the afternoon. Jordan on Monday condemned Israels provocative plan to include two flashpoint religious shrines in the occupied West Bank in a list of national heritage sites. Jordan demands Israel cancel such provocative plans that would harm peace efforts in the region and anger millions of Muslims around the world, government spokesman Nabil Sharif said in a statement. Instead of creating a suitable environment for peace and trust, Israel continues to take destructive measures. Egypt also condemned Israeli plan, saying it undermined peace efforts. The decision is illegal, foreign ministry spokesman Hossam Zaki said in a statement. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu sparked anger on Sunday when he said he hoped to include the Tomb of the Patriarchs in Hebron and Rachels Tomb in Bethlehem in a 100-million-dollar plan to restore national heritage sites. We strongly condemn this decision which yet again confirms the Israeli governments determination to impose facts on the ground, chief Palestinian negotiator Saeb Erakat told AFP. This Israeli decision is provocative for Muslims around the world and especially Palestinians, he said. The Hamas movement ruling the Gaza Strip also lashed out at the decision, with its tourism minister Mohammed Al-Agha calling on Palestinians in Israel and the West Bank to make their way to the site and defend it. The Tomb of the Patriarchs in Hebron, where the Hazrat Abraham (AS) is believed buried, is sacred to both Muslims and Jews and has long been the scene of tensions. A few hundred hardline Jewish settlers under heavy Israeli military protection have taken up residence near the site and converted part of the Ibrahimi mosque above it into a synagogue. The mosque was the site of the infamous massacre of 29 Palestinian worshippers in 1994 by Jewish extremist Baruch Goldstein, who was beaten to death by survivors during the melee that followed the shooting. More than 160,000 Palestinians live in Hebron, from which the Israeli military partially withdrew in 1998.
