Palestinian stone throwers clash with Israeli security forces in Beit El, near the West Bank city of Ramallah, on October 8, 2015Videos spread on social media showing Palestinians stabbing Israelis and throwing stones at soldiers are mustering online youth activists to the frontline after days of violence. A Facebook page set up as clashes and stabbings continue to rock Israel and the occupied West Bank declares in Arabic that “the intifada (uprising) has been launched”. The page has its own logo of a masked youth throwing stones bordered by a halo by the black, red and green of the Palestinian flag.
