    The clashes were caused by the Thursday shooting near the Givat Asaf junction, between the cities of Beit El and Ofra, which left two soldiers dead, while two people – a soldier and a civilian, were seriously injured.

    The footage shows Israeli settlers shouting at officers and clashing with the police during a demonstration in the West Bank. According to The Jerusalem Post, people in several locations in the area took to the streets, demanding security and criticising Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

    Following the Thursday incident, the Israel Defence Forces blocked the de-facto Palestinian capital Ramallah in order to find the shooter.
