On Friday dawn, Israeli soldiers invaded the Qalandia refugee camp, north of occupied Jerusalem, and seriously injured a young man after shooting him with a rubber-coated steel bullet in his eye.

Media sources said protests took place when undercover Israeli soldiers infiltrated the refugee camp in a car with civilian license plates.

Several army jeeps then invaded the refugee camp before the soldiers fired many live rounds, rubber-coated steel bullets, and gas bombs while many youngsters hurled stones and Molotov cocktails.

Medical sources have confirmed that the soldiers shot a young man with a rubber-coated steel bullet in his eye, causing serious wounds.

The Israeli army claimed that the soldiers “accidentally entered the refugee camp before the locals attacked their vehicles with rocks and Molotov cocktails.”

It is worth mentioning that in the year 2016, the army killed two Palestinians, Eyad Omar Sajdiyya, 21, and Nahed Fawzi Mteir,  21, when protesters burned two military vehicles and injured two soldiers in the refugee camp; at the time, the army also claimed the soldiers “entered the refugee camp accidentally.”

In related news, the soldiers confiscated flowers and plant boxes in front of a shop in the Al-Musrara neighborhood in Bab Al-Amoud in occupied Jerusalem.

In addition, the soldiers abducted a former political prisoner, Mohammad Al-Bakri, from his home in Beit Hanina, north of occupied Jerusalem, just a week before his planned wedding.

The Palestinian is also the brother of former political prisoner Ahmad, whom Israel imprisoned for eight years.
