At least two Palestinians were shot and injured with rubber-coated steel bullets during protest that broke out at the entrance to the al-Jalazoun refugee camp, north of Ramallah, occupied West Bank, after Israeli soldiers invaded the area.

Mahmoud Mubarak, chairman of the popular committee for services in Jalazoun refugee camp, said that Israeli forces have been conducting searches near the entrance to the camp since last night, after blocking off the main road that connects the camp to Ramallah city.

The soldiers fired rubber-coated steel bullets and tear gas canisters toward Palestinians, shooting and injuring at least two youth.

Dozens of suffocation cases, due to tear gas inhalation, were also reported.

Forces reportedly took over the rooftops of several homes in the area, WAFA reports.
