Dozens of residents suffered the effects of teargas inhalation, and at least 11 have been kidnapped following clashes between local youth and the Israeli army and police in occupied East Jerusalem on Tuesday evening.
The clashes took place as hundreds of Palestinians marched to protest a procession by extremist Israeli settlers who have been trying to break into the Al-Aqsa Mosque, Palestinian sources reported.
Elsewhere Israeli soldiers kidnapped on Tuesday at dawn eight Palestinians in different parts of the occupied West Bank. Local sources said that invasions targeted the southern west Bank city of Hebron and Nablus city in the north and nearby villages. Local youth clashes with the invading soldiers, no injuries reported.
In other news a number of armored Israeli military vehicles, and a military bulldozer, invaded on Tuesday at dawn an area east of the Al-Boreij refugee camp, in central Gaza, and clashed with Palestinian fighters.
Eyewitnesses said that the fighters managed to detonate an explosive charge under the military bulldozer, and that fire and smoke was seen coming out of the targeted vehicle.
Soldiers fired dozens of rounds of live ammunition and used smokescreens in an attempt to conceal the movement of their vehicles, and advanced to uproot farmlands in the area.
Also on Tuesday, several Israeli military vehicles carried out a limited invasion into an area, east of Deir Al-Balah, in central Gaza, and uprooted Palestinian lands.
