Israeli soldiers closed, on Sunday evening, the main entrance of the al-‘Arroub refugee camp, north of the southern West Bank city of Hebron, and assaulted many Palestinian protesters. The army also abducted a Palestinian in Qalqilia, in northern West Bank.

Media sources in Hebron said the soldiers closed the main entrance of the al-Arroub refugee camp, which links with the Jerusalem-Hebron road.

They added that the soldiers prevented the Palestinians from entering or leaving the refugee camp, and closed the nearby junction, blocking traffic on the main road.

Many Palestinians protested the invasion and the closure, and hurled stones at the soldiers who fired a barrage of gas bombs and concussion grenades, causing many Palestinians to suffer the effects of teargas inhalation.

In related news, the soldiers installed a sudden military roadblock at the main entrance of Hibla town, south of the northern West Bank city of Qalqilia, before stopping and searching many cars, and abducted one Palestinian, identified as Ibrahim Jamal Zeid, 21.
