Images shot at Jerusalem’s Damascus Gate on Thursday show how an Israeli soldier violently ripped a Palestinian scarf from round a Palestinian child’s neck.

The Palestinian scarf or ‘kufiyya’ became a symbol of Palestinian nationalism at the time of the 1936–1939 Palestinian Arab revolt. Outside of the Middle East and North Africa, the kufiyya gained popularity among activists supporting the Palestinian cause, and now it’s seen as symbol of “Palestinian solidarity”.
