Twelve Palestinian civilians were injured and others detained, Sunday, when Israeli forces stormed al-Am’ari refugee camp, south of Ramallah, in the central occupied West Bank.

The Palestinian Ministry of Health confirmed that 12 Palestinians suffered injuries and received medical care at the Palestine Medical Center in Ramallah.

Local sources said that a large Israeli military force invaded the refugee camp and broke into the home of the Abu-Arab family, the Palestinian Information Center reported.

The sources added that the soldiers detained the wife of Palestinian activist, Ayman Abu-Arab and his brothers Mohamed and Rajab, in an attempt to coerce him to turn himself in to authorities.

Israeli soldiers opened fire with live rounds and rubber-coated steel rounds at local Palestinians that objected to the military invasion, the Palestinian WAFA News Agency reported.

It added that the soldiers shot Palestinians with live rounds, while two others were shot with rubber-coated rounds. All 12 injuries were described as minor.

In related news, Israeli troops fired tear-gas at Palestinians, Sunday evening, in the village of Burin, southwest of Nablus in the northern West Bank, WAFA reported.

Israeli troops invaded the village, causing the civilian locals to resist the military incursion, to which Israeli forces reacted by shooting tear-gas and rubber-coated steel rounds at the protesters.

Many Palestinians suffered the toxic effects of tear-gas inhalation.
