Israeli forces demolished two Palestinian homes overnight Sunday in the Qalandiya refugee camp -- displacing at least six Palestinian refugees -- sparking clashes in the densely populated camp that left four Palestinians injured by Israeli fire.
The punitive demolition was carried out against the Assaf and Abu Habsa families as punishment for stab attacks carried out by two young members of the families last year.
Israeli forces shot and injured four Palestinians with live fire when fierce clashes erupted after an Israeli convoy stormed the camp to begin demolishing the homes, locals told Ma’an.
Local sources said Israeli forces detained and proceeded to assault two young men after they have been shot and injured. Israeli forces fired tear gas canisters and stun grenades at ambulances to prevent them from entering the camp to evacuate the wounded, after the Palestinian Red Crescent received several emergency calls from inside the camp. more
