Clashes broke out on Sunday (October 2, 2016) between the residents of Abu Saiba village and ministry of interior security forces, who took down some banners related to Ashura.
One of the residents said "We were surprised to see wide number of security men entering the village and trying to remove the banners. When we tried to ask them about the reason of them removing the banners, they used tear gas canisters against us."
Dozens of angry youths, who peacefully protested against the ministry of interior forces, took to the streets and held banners that read angry slogans. However, these forces used tear gas canisters against the protestors, which left a number of injured citizens after being directly targeted.
