The boy who was arrested belongs to the Shatiwi clan, which is responsible for organizing these demonstrations. He was arrested for hurling rocks at soldiers from inside a building located on the outskirts of town.

 

The IDF backed the officer, saying he had acted properly in order to complete his mission and prevent the influx of violent protesters and rioters to nearby Israeli settlements.

"During the arrest of a Palestinian minor who was hurling rocks at IDF soldiers, a number of Palestinians gathered round in protest. The soldiers completed their mission, arrested the offenders and left the village without causing damage or injuries," the statement said.
