October 12, 2015 at 13:36 GMT +00:00 · Published

Clashes broke out between a group of Palestinians and Israeli security forces in al-Bireh, Monday, as violence continued to grip the West Bank.

The clashes erupted at the northern entrance of the Palestinian city of al-Bireh, located next to the illegal Orthodox Jewish Beit El settlement. Israeli forces fired tear gas and shot at protesters who responded by throwing rocks.

Recent weeks have witnessed increased violence across the Palestinian territories, triggered by Israeli authorities banning Muslims access to the al-Aqsa mosque, a site in East Jerusalem sacred to both Jews and Muslims. According to the Palestinian Health Ministry 25 Palestinians have been killed by Israeli security forces since October 3, with more than 1,300 left injured.
