Israeli soldiers injured, Monday, dozens of Palestinians after the army assaulted protesters near Qalandia refugee camp, north of occupied East Jerusalem.

Hundreds of Palestinians marched from the refugee camp towards the Qalandia terminal, before the soldiers started firing live rounds, rubber-coated steel bullets, gas bombs and concussion grenades at them, while many protesters hurled stones and empty bottles at the army.

The Palestinians marched marking the 70th anniversary of the Palestinian Nakba (Catastrophe) when Israel was created in the historic land of Palestine, and carried Palestinian flags in addition to signs written in several languages.

They also chanted against the opening of the U.S. embassy in occupied Jerusalem, in direct violations of International Law and Numerous United Nations resolutions.
