Palestine Today reports that there were riots today in the vicinity of the "Bilal bin Rabah mosque," which is in fact the new name given to Rachel's Tomb. Presumably the attackers were targeting Jews who wanted to visit the holy site ahead of Yom Kippur. I did not see any Israeli media write about this as of this writing.

There were also riots outside Joseph's Tomb last night, with 60 Arabs hurling rocks and Molotov cocktails and rolling burning tires at a group of Jews visiting the site. One soldier was injured.

But there have been other riots in Bethlehem over the past couple of days - against the PA. Arutz-7 reports:
In Bethlehem just south of the Israeli capital, Palestinian Authority police are facing protests for very a very different reason, as a viral video showing their far less reserved tactics in dealing with rioters provoked protests outside PA police headquarters in the city.

The video was taken on Friday, and shows PA police attempting to arrest a youth, who just moments before was involved in a violent protest in solidarity with Muslim violence in Jerusalem. When the suspect starts to struggle, the police simply shove him to the ground, at which point some half-dozen officers proceed to kick and beat him repeatedly.

After footage went viral on social media an angry protest outside Bethlehem's PA security headquarters ensued, with demonstrators branding PA leader Mahmoud Abbas as a "collaborator."
