Palestinians hurt during clashes with Israeli forces in al-Arrub camp

HEBRON (Ma'an) -- Over a dozen Palestinians were hurt early Sunday during clashes with Israeli forces north of Hebron, medics said.

A volunteer for the Palestinian Red Crescent told Ma'an 15 Palestinians received first aid treatment after being hit by rubber-coated bullets in al-Arrub refugee camp.

Ambulance services also evacuated three families after tear gas filled their homes, the volunteer said.

During clashes, Palestinians hurled stones and empty bottles at soldiers who fired tear gas, stun grenades, and rubber-coated bullets, he said.

Similar clashes took place elsewhere in the Hebron district, he added.

An Israeli army spokeswoman said several Palestinians gathered in al-Arrub and hurled rocks and rolled burning tires at Israeli forces.

Soldiers responded with riot dispersal means, the spokeswoman said, without elaborating.
