Ramallah lynching

The 2000 Ramallah lynching was a violent incident in October 2000 of the Second Intifada in which a Palestinian mob lynched two Israeli soldiers, Vadim Nurzhitz and Yossi Avrahami, who had accidentally entered the Palestinian Authority-controlled city of Ramallah in the West Bank. The brutality of the event, captured in an iconic photo of a Palestinian rioter proudly waving his blood-stained hands to the crowd below, sparked international outrage and further intensified the ongoing conflict between Israeli and Palestinian forces.
