Israeli forces shoot, injure 3 teens near Ramallah

RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- Three Palestinian teenagers were shot and injured with live rounds on Friday when Israeli forces opened fire on them during clashes in al-Jalazun refugee camp north of Ramallah.

They were taken to hospital for treatment with light to moderate injuries.

Several others were injured with rubber-coated steel bullets.

Al-Jalazun camp is the site of frequent clashes between Israeli forces and Palestinian youths.

In April, Israeli forces injured 12 Palestinian youths in the camp, three with live fire and a further nine with rubber-coated steel bullets.

Two weeks before that, thousands of Palestinians attended the funeral in al-Jalazun of a young man who succumbed to his wounds after being shot by Israeli forces during a protest near Ramallah.

At the time, the head of a popular committee in the refugee camp, Mahmoud Mubarak, said that the camp was being "systematically and unnaturally" attacked by Israel, and that there were nearly daily clashes and injuries taking place.

No People Are Entitled To Stage Violent Clashes,
And Every Nation Is Entitled To Disperse Them,
and to do so with all necessary force, to restore calm.

@Tibi Do not the Palestinians not also have that right? Al-Jalazun is not in Israel, so your comment about the "nation" is misleading. If there was a problem, it was for the Palestinian police to handle it.

so how do you justify the Warsaw Ghetto uprising. Are you saying that the Nazis had every right to destroy the uprising to restore calm?

Sorry to say America is complicit in the murders of the more than 2500 people of Palestine during July and August 2014. Yet our government will never say so nor push Israel to face up to their responsibilities.
