Israeli Soldier attempted to forcibly arrest a Palestinian boy with a broken arm during a protest in Ramallah

A Palestinian family on Friday reacted to help a Palestinian boy as an Israeli soldier attempted to arrest him in Nabi Saleh village, near the West Bank city of Ramallah, during a protest against the occupation of Palestinian land by Israel and the Wall of shame, a barrier separating Israel and the West Bank.   

The Israeli soldier used force to pin the boy to the ground while pointing a gun at the boy’s head.

The images show the chaos and fear of the Palestinian people caught up in the violence in the West Bank and elsewhere across Palestine.

Israeli forces often seize Palestinians due to “security reasons” across the occupied West Bank and East Jerusalem.

Addameer, Prisoner Support and Humans Rights Association reported that 40 percent of the Palestinian male population has been arrested at least once.

Last week on Thursday, Israeli forces have arrested at least 10 Palestinians in several locations within the occupied West Bank and Jerusalem.

Currently there are more than 6,400 Palestinian prisoners held in Israeli jails, including nearly 200 minors, according to B'Tselem, a non-profit organisation documenting Israeli human rights violations in occupied Palestinian territories.
