A Minor Clash
Why are my spidey senses telling me that by “minor” clash, the AFP caption writer does not mean “a clash initiated by minors”? Perhaps because he already let us know the clash just happened to “erupt”?
I’m guessing that in the AFP dictionary, a clash is defined as “minor” if it is triggered by palestinians.
Either way, the presence of the photographer should clue you in to where they stand – right alongside the palestinians.
Update: Even the palestinian Ma’an News agency calls the clashes “fierce.”
