Violent clashes burst out near the Ibrahimi Mosque, in al-Khalil, on Monday after the Israeli occupation forces (IOF) stormed the area and aggressively attacked Palestinian protesters.
A PIC news correspondent said violent confrontations burst out near an Israeli military checkpoint pitched in Abu Al-Rish Zone, adjacent to the southern entrance to the Ibrahimi Mosque, in al-Khalil, after the occupation soldiers aggressively beat a Palestinian youth.
The Israeli forces further showered the area with spates of bullet fire.
The Palestinian protesters responded to the attack by hurling stones toward the checkpoint. A Palestinian youth also tossed a Molotov cocktail at an Israeli military watchtower in the area.
The occupation troops sealed off the checkpoint along with the main access road into the Ibrahimi Mosque, before they chased down Palestinian youths across residential neighborhoods.
