HEBRON, Thursday, December 16, 2021 (WAFA) – Two Palestinians minors sustained injuries as Israeli forces raided al-Arroub refugee camp, north of Hebron, according to witnesses.
They said that the occupation forces stormed the camp, triggering confrontations, and opened fire towards the camp residents, hitting two minors by rubber-coated steel bullets and causing dozens others to suffocate from tear gas.
The minors were rushed to a hospital for urgent treatment. The suffocation cases received treatment at the scene.
Israeli forces frequently raid Palestinian houses almost on a daily basis across the West Bank on the pretext of searching for "wanted" Palestinians, triggering clashes with residents.
These raids, which take place also in areas under the full control of the Palestinian Authority, are conducted with no need for a search warrant, whenever and wherever the military chooses in keeping with its sweeping arbitrary powers.
Under Israeli military law army commanders have full executive, legislative and judicial authority over 3 million Palestinians living in the West Bank. Palestinians have no say in how this authority is exercised.
