Palestine: Dozens of Palestinians injured by Israeli army fire at al-‘Arroub refugee camp,
 
By Saed Bannoura
IMEMC & Agencies: Palestinian medical sources have reported that dozens of Palestinians were wounded, late on Friday at night, during clashes with Israeli soldiers at the northern entrance of the al-‘Arroub refugee camp, north of the southern West Bank city of Hebron.
The sources said six Palestinians were shot by rubber-coated metal bullets, while at least two were directly hit by gas bombs fired by the army, and suffered burns and bruises to various parts of their bodies.

The soldiers prevented Palestinian Red Crescent ambulances from entering the camp, and the medics had to walk into the camp to provide the needed treatment to the wounded Palestinians.

Scores of residents suffered the effects of tear gas inhalation, and some lost consciousness, as the soldiers fired gas bombs at different homes, especially homes close to the military tower, at the entrance of the camp.

The families had to leave their homes and seek shelter elsewhere due to the massive number of gas bombs fired by the soldiers.

Clashes also took place in the southern area of Hebron city, especially in the Old City, and Tareq Ben Ziad junction. Dozens of residents suffered the effects of tear gas inhalation.

On Saturday at dawn, soldiers invaded Barta’a ash-Sharqiyya village, southwest of the northern West Bank city of Jenin, and fired rounds of live ammunition, rubber-coated metal bullets, gas bombs and concussion grenades, causing dozens of residents to suffer the effects of tear gas inhalation.

The army left the village two hours later, no arrests were reported.

Also on Saturday at dawn, several Palestinian communities in the West Bank district of Bethlehem, searched homes and kidnapped three Palestinians.

The soldiers also installed roadblocks, isolating two villages.
