JERUSALEM (Ma'an) -- Israeli military forces clashed with local Palestinians in al-Eizariya late Sunday, witnesses told Ma'an.
Locals said that Israeli forces attacked a peaceful rally organized by Fatah's youth movement in support of the al-Aqsa mosque, firing tear gas canisters and rubber-coated steel bullets.
Palestinian youths hurled stones and empty bottles in response.
Freelance photojournalist Rami Illariya told Ma'an that Israeli soldiers stopped him and ordered him to leave the area during the clashes because they didn't want the incident to be documented.
