13 Palestinians injured in clashes north of Jerusalem

July 22, 2014 12:54 A.M. (Updated: July 24, 2014 9:45 A.M.)
JERUSALEM (Ma'an) -- Thirteen Palestinians were injured late Monday in clashes with Israeli forces in al-Ram north of Jerusalem, a Ma'an reporter said.

Youths threw rocks and empty bottles at Israeli soldiers, who shot live fire, rubber-coated bullets, and tear gas at protesters.

Protesters set fire to tires, closed a main road with a barrier of dumpsters, and shot fireworks at soldiers.

Fireworks briefly set an Israeli military jeep ablaze.

Clashes also broke out between Palestinians and Israeli forces in several neighborhoods in and near Jerusalem.

A spokeswoman for the Israeli army confirmed that clashes took place in al-Ram, but did not immediately provide further details.
