Violent encounters broke out Monday morning between Palestinians and Israeli forces at a Jerusalem refugee camp, with wounds endured by both sides.
Six Israeli border troops were hurt when inhabitants of the Qalandiya refugee camp rebelled and threw cinderblocks and other significant objects at officers from rooftops, the Border Police said in a declared.
The troops feared for their lives and started a fire on the demonstrators, the Border Police said.
The Palestinian Authority Health Ministry stated four Palestinians were wounded, three of them severely and one slightly, all purportedly from live fire.
The ministry told the three serious patients were experiencing surgery, two of them after receiving bullets in the chest and one having been thumped in the femoral vein.
The Border Police gendarmerie had joined the camp, which extends beyond the safety limit but is within Jerusalem’s municipal boundaries, in order to capture three people required on suspicion of car theft.
Troops from the Israel Defense Forces ultimately came in and started two of them, and all Israeli forces moved from the area, the Border Police announced.
The incident occurred days after the death of a Palestinian teenager who was allegedly shot by the Israeli army during unrest on Friday. Ali Abu Aliya, 13, was fired in the abdomen during a severe demonstration in Kafr Malik in the central West Bank upon the establishment of a new settlement outpost.
