Israeli forces injure 3 Palestinian youths during clashes in al-Jalazun refugee camp

RAMALLAH (Ma’an) -- Israeli forces Friday injured three Palestinian youths in al-Jalazun refugee camp in the central occupied West Bank district of Ramallah with rubber-coated steel bullets, as clashes broke out between Israeli soldiers and Palestinian youth in the camp.

Locals told Ma’an that during the clashes at the entrance of the camp, Israeli forces shot rubber-coated steel bullets and tear gas canisters at youth in the camp, injuring three. The injured Palestinians were reported as “boys,” but their exact age and the severity of their injuries remained unknown as of Friday.

Israeli forces also reportedly detained one of the injured youths.

Locals added that Israeli forces had attempted to reach the main street of the camp, but were met with Palestinian youth throwing rocks and empty bottles, forcing the Israeli soldiers to retreat into the nearby illegal Israeli Beit El settlement.

An Israeli army spokesperson told Ma’an they would look into reports of the incident.
