Israeli soldiers invaded, on Wednesday evening, Abu Dis town, southeast of occupied East Jerusalem, and clashed with many Palestinians near Abu Dis University, leading to the injury of 50 Palestinians, including ten who were shot with rubber-coated steel bullets.

The Palestinian Red Crescent said its medics provided the needed treatment to 39 Palestinians, who suffered the severe effects of teargas inhalation, 10 who were shot with rubber-coated steel bullets, and one who suffered burns in his arm.  

Lawyer Bassam Bahar, the head of Abu Dis Land Defense Committee, said dozens of soldiers invaded the town, and surrounded Al-Quds Abu Dis University, before stopping many Palestinians and investigating their ID cards.

Bahar added that the invasion led to clashes between the soldiers, who fired dozens of rubber-coated steel bullets, gas bombs and concussion grenades, and local youngsters, who hurled stones and empty bottles at them.

The soldiers fired many gas bombs, rubber-coated steel bullets and concussion grenades, into the university campus.
