Eyewitnesses told the PIC that clashes erupted after the incident, adding that the child was severely beaten.

They said that the soldiers fired teargas and metal bullets at citizens and parking cars in Bab Al-Zawiya, adding that young men threw stones and empty bottles at the soldiers.

They said that soldiers occupied rooftops of buildings in the suburb where tension was running high since the morning hours after dozens of young men gathered in protest at the killing of Mohammed Asy, a Palestinian resistance fighter, at the hands of IOF soldiers in Ramallah.
