    Protests against Israel - Nov 17, 2012.


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     ywyfl2012 captured these images near Rachel's Tomb, a holy site in the West Bank town of Bethlehem on Thursday, November 17. "I picked up my camera and headed towards the action. It wasn't before long when I could hear the shouting and glass being broken as the kids threw rocks at the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) security wall around the bend," he says. "There were about 40 to 50 kids and adults standing in groups, half of them were at the wall shouting at the IDF in the tower."

    Feeling out of place, ywyfl2012 says as he got closer to the action, he felt that the situation could get worse in a blink of an eye. "Most of them had handkerchiefs on to cover themselves from tear gas or burning rubber fumes, but standing close enough to hurl rocks," he says. "Ten minutes later they set what looked like two tires on fire -- one on top of the other at the foot of the wall, which quickly burned creating looms of smoke up in the air."

    Arabs fight against Israel. Kids throw rocks at the IDF security tower, then they light car tires on fire at the bottom of the wall. They smash the windows of the tower and glass was all around.


    Took these between 6 and 6:30 PM
