The abduction of the young Palestinian led to clashes between the invading soldiers and local youths, who hurled stones and empty bottles at them.

The army fired rounds of live ammunition, in addition to gas bombs and rubber-coated metal bullets.

At least three Palestinians, were wounded, and one of them, identified as Raghad Shamroukh, 20 years of age, was also kidnapped.
