RAMALLAH, October 6 (JMCC) - A video by cameraman Amjad Arafa, distributed by the QNN news center and reported by the Electronic Intifada, shows Israeli forces detaining a boy identified as Hasan al-Afifi in the old city of Jerusalem Friday.

A uniformed man then punches the teenager, who is on the ground with one hand behind his back, in the head so that it strikes the hard floor.

Clashes broke out on the grounds of the al-Aqsa Mosque Friday when police stormed the area to break up a demonstration. Israeli right-wing groups sought to enter the mosque area to pray this week, raising tensions.
