Palestinian medical sources have reported that five Palestinians were shot and wounded, on Sunday evening [September 1 2013], during clashes with Israeli soldiers near the Al-Jalazonerefugee camp, north of the central West Bank city of Ramallah. The clashes took place after a number of extremist Israeli settlers from Bet El settlement, hurled stones at Palestinian vehicles driving on the Ramallah-Nablus road.

Local residents clashed with the settlers, and when the soldiers arrived at the scene, they opened fire at the residents.

The camp witnessed repeated clashes over the past three days due to escalating violations carried out by Israeli soldiers and settlers in the area.

The clashes are concentrated in an area that is nearly 100 meters away from the Israeli “Civil Administration Office DCO” run by the military in the occupied territories.
