October 8, 2015 at 01:50 GMT +00:00 · Published

Palestinian youths were out in numbers in Ramallah demonstrating on Thursday, with scores injured in the unrest and one person killed.

Violence has escalted across Palestinian territories in the last week, with over 130 injured on Tuesday alone. The violence has drawn the attention of the international press and led to statements from political leaders, who are concerned over the possibilities of a third intifada (uprising) starting. The violence has seen six Palestinians and four Israelis killed, at the time of writing.

In a bid to prevent further provocation of Palestinian protesters, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has banned Israeli ministers from entering the holy sites in Jerusalem. The Second Intifada, beginning in 2000, ignited when Israeli politician Ariel Sharon visited the holy sites.
