Clashes erupted in Bir Ayyub district of Silwan on Saturday night, 12 November, when Israeli forces provoked confrontations with local residents. Clashes quickly spread to other neighborhoods, with Israeli forces firing tear gas and rubber bullets on residents. A 16-year old boy, Mahmoud Atyeh, was arrested and beaten by Israeli officers.

Eyewitnesses state that violence erupted when a number of Israeli forces chased a group of local youth who had been standing in the street.
