Israeli forces storm Hebron area refugee camp, injure 35 with live fire, tear gas, rubber bullets

35 Palestinians were injured, one seriously, early Tuesday morning during clashes when Israeli forces stormed the al-Fawwar refugee camp in the southern occupied West Bank district of Hebron.

Locals told Ma’an that large numbers of Israeli troops surrounded the camp around dawn on Tuesday, when they began ransacking homes and interrogating residents in the streets.

Local youth reportedly reacted to the forces, sparking clashes with the soldiers who fired live gunshots, tear gas, and rubber-coated steel bullets at the youth.

Three youth were injured with live fire, one of whom was evacuated to the hospital after sustaining serious injuries.

Dozens more were injured with rubber-coated steel bullets.
