The confrontations broke out when Israeli forces violently cracked down on a protest against Jewish settler attacks in the village.
The heavily-armed soldiers fired live rounds, rubber-coated steel bullets and tear gas canisters toward the participants, hitting two, including Abu Alia, with live ammunition and causing dozens to suffer from the effects of tear gas inhalation.
