The Israeli military said it opened fire after Palestinians damaged the border fence.Muslim authorities said dozens of people were hurt by Israeli police stun grenades.Some 40 Palestinians are thought to have been wounded by Israeli forces, according to Wafa news agency, with police using tear gas and live fire against protestors.Separately, Israeli Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman said Friday Israel will build hundreds of new homes in a settlement in the occupied West Bank where a Palestinian stabbed three Israelis, killing one.The teenage attacker snuck into the settlement Thursday evening by climbing a fence, Israeli media reported.He stabbed three people seemingly at random before being shot dead, the army said, naming the dead Israeli as Yotam Ovadia, 31 .Attacks against Israelis in the West Bank are supported by many Palestinians as pushing back against settlement growth.
