They were hit by cinder blocks thrown from the fifth floor of a building as they walked past, and came under a hail of boulders, firebombs (Molotov cocktails) and stones.

One of the soldiers was hit in the head by a boulder, his helmet damaged in the process. As a result, the soldier suffered a serious head injury. He was evacuated to a Jerusalem hospital.

Additional forces were sent to the neighborhood to back up the soldiers who came under attack.
