Palestinians clash with Israeli troops across East Jerusalem

July 23, 2014 12:08 A.M. (Updated: July 24, 2014 12:26 A.M.)
JERUSALEM (Ma'an) -- Palestinians on Tuesday night clashed with Israeli forces across occupied East Jerusalem as protests in solidarity with Gaza erupted for another night across the region.

Undercover Israeli forces detained seven young Palestinian men, including a paramedic, during clashes with Israeli forces in the East Jerusalem neighborhood of at-Tur late on Tuesday evening.

Eyewitnesses told Ma'an that a group of undercover agents ambushed the young men and managed to detain seven. They added that soldiers showered the protesters with rubber-coated bullets and stun grenades during the clashes.

Similarly, clashes broke in Shufat refugee camp in East Jerusalem between Palestinians and Israeli soldiers overnight.

A spokesman for the Fatah movement in the camp Thaer al-Fasfous said a young man was evacuated to hospital after he was hit in the face by a rubber-coated steel bullet.

Several others were hurt as a result of inhaling tear gas.

The East Jerusalem village of al-Isawiya witnessed similar clashes with Israeli troops. A member of a local follow-up committee told Ma'an that Israeli soldiers sprayed foul-smelling liquid at the protesters and fired rubber-coated bullets and stun grenades heavily to disperse demonstrators.

Israeli police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld said that five suspects were detained in "disturbances" overnight.

Also on Tuesday night, one Palestinian was killed and two injured in protests across the West Bank, while police clashed with rallies the day before in Palestinian areas across northern Israel.
