Images showing an armed Israeli soldier trying to arrest an 11-year-old Palestinian boy in the West Bank have gone viral on social media.
Although such scuffles between IDF and Palestinian stone-throwers are not uncommon, this particular incident has caught the attention of the Internet because of the boy’s broken arm and the fact that the soldier was later attacked by his family.
At one point, the child’s sister can be seen biting the soldier's right hand so as to free her brother from his hold.
The boy was reportedly throwing stones at soldiers in the village of Nabi Saleh, north of Ramallah, during a protest against illegal Jewish settlements in the embattled region.
His father, Bassem Tamimi, captured the fight on camera, according to CNN.
