    The week was marked by another escalation of tensions between Israeli and Palestinian protesters, following a shooting attack near the Givat Asaf junction, which left two soldiers dead, while two people – a soldier and a civilian, were critically wounded.

    The footage shows the Israel Defence Forces (IDF) forcing Palestinian protestors to leave the road near the District Coordination Office of the Israeli Civil Administration in West Bank.

    Responding to the Thursday shooting, the Israel Defence Forces earlier blocked the de-facto Palestinian capital Ramallah in order to find the suspect, who is still at large.

    Later in the day, the Palestinian Health Ministry said in a statement that a Palestinian was killed in clashes with the Israeli army in the West Bank.

    "A Palestinian… from the Jalazone refugee camp in Ramallah died from severe wounds he received in clashes with the Israeli military," the statement reads.
