Dozens of Israeli soldiers invaded, on Saturday morning, the Deheishe refugee camp, south of Bethlehem, and clashed with many youngsters who hurled stones on the army vehicles.

Eyewitnesses said the soldiers invaded the camp through the main Jerusalem-Hebron road, and that many youngsters hurled stones and empty bottles on the military vehicles, near the main entrance of the refugee camp.

The soldiers fired many live rounds, rubber-coated steel bullets, concussion grenades and gas bombs. There have been no reports of injuries at the time of this report.

In addition, the soldiers stormed and searched many homes, and tried to break into a number of stores.

The army withdrew from the camp without conducting any arrests.
