'9 Israeli officers injured' during Shufat arrest raid

Nov. 7, 2012 11:28 A.M. (Updated: Nov. 8, 2012 2:02 A.M.)
BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Nine Israeli border police officers were injured during an arrest operation in Jerusalem's Shufat neighborhood on Tuesday, Israeli police said.

Israeli police spokesman Mickey Rosenfeld told Ma'an that one officer was stabbed in the back and eight others injured by rocks, during an arrest operation in Shufat.

A 17-year-old boy was arrested in relation to the stabbing incident, Rosenfeld added.

In December 2011, Israeli authorities officially inaugurated a new military checkpoint at the main entrance to the Shufat refugee camp in north Jerusalem.

Residents protested against the construction of a checkpoint which they say will cut the 45,000-strong community from the rest of the city and control their movements.

The Palestinian Center for Human Rights slammed the encirclement of Shufat.

"This crossing, deep in Palestinian territory, is part of Israeli policies aimed at cutting Jerusalem off from the West Bank, and perpetuating Israel’s annexation of the city in violation of international humanitarian law," a press statement said.

Shufat is the only Palestinian refugee camp within the municipal boundaries of Jerusalem and is administered by the UN agency for Palestinian refugees, or UNRWA.
