Israeli forces clash with youths in Bethlehem camp

March 21, 2014 10:23 P.M. (Updated: March 23, 2014 11:10 A.M.)
BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Several Palestinians were injured Friday evening in clashes with Israeli forces in Aida refugee camp north of Bethlehem.

Locals said that Israeli forces fired tear gas, rubber bullets, and stun grenades at protesters lightly injuring several of them who were treated on the spot or taken to nearby hospitals.

The clashes started after Palestinian youths smashed a hole in Israel’s wall and set the watchtower near the northern entrance of Bethlehem on fire.

Tear-gas canisters fired by Israeli soldiers also caused a fire in a house in the camp, witnesses said.

The fire started in a room in a house belonging to Ayed Abu Aker, but was stopped from spreading by Palestinian civil defense.

An Israeli security official said 80 Palestinians threw rocks as well as one improvised hand grenade.
