State of Palestine: Clashes erupt in Ramallah as violence grips the West Bank

Palestinian Territory, Occupied, Ramallah
October 9, 2015 at 19:28 GMT +00:00 · Published

Palestinians and Israeli soldiers clashed in Ramallah as violence continued across the West Bank and the Gaza Strip on Friday. Protesters hurled rocks, some using sling shots, whilst Israeli soldiers fired volleys of tear gas.

Violence has escalated 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).

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.
