Israeli soldiers invaded, on Thursday evening, al-Arroub refuge camp, north of the southern West Bank city of Hebron, leading to clashes between the soldiers and dozens of youths who hurled stones and empty bottles at the invading forces.The army fired rubber-coated metal bullets and gas bombs, including gas bombs that were directly fired at a number of homes leading to damage, local sources reported.

Soldiers claimed that the invasion was carried out after a number of youths threw stones at settler vehicles driving on the main road near the camp.

Earlier on Thursday, soldiers installed several roadblocks near al-Fawwar refugee camp, including a roadblock at the entrance to the camp, and searched dozens of vehicles while inspecting the ID cards of the residents and interrogating some of them.

Dozens of soldiers were also deployed at the entrances of several towns and villages in the Hebron district, including the towns of Beit Awwa, Dir Samit, Sa’ir, and Halhoul. The soldiers installed roadblocks and searched dozens of vehicles.
