RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- Four Palestinians were injured by live bullets during clashes with Israeli soldiers in al-Jalazun refugee camp north of Ramallah on Friday, locals said.

Israeli forces chased Palestinians down the alleys of the camp and fired live ammunition, rubber-coated steel bullets, and tear gas at Palestinians who threw stones and empty bottles in return.

No Palestinians were detained during the clashes, despite the attempts of Israeli forces.

An Israeli army spokeswoman said that "violence and illegal riots" had erupted in the camp and Israeli forces used "riot dispersal means" to contain them.

She said that Israeli forces subsequently resorted to opening fire with "22 caliber bullets towards the instigators' lower extremities."

"Four hits were confirmed," she added.

In December, an Israeli sniper shot dead a 15-year-old Palestinian boy in the back in al-Jalazun refugee camp.

Human Rights Watch said on Sunday that there was no evidence of "any threat to life that would justify such a killing," by Israeli forces.

The internationally recognized Palestinian territories of which the West Bank and East Jerusalem form a part have been occupied by the Israeli military since 1967.

If Palestinians forces would STOP THE CLASHES, Then Israeli forces would STOP THE SHOOTING.

Tobias you idea of peace is for one side to surrender quietly and remain oppressed and dependent on you. Oppressing others cannot and will not give you security , nor peace.

Palestinians enjoy the highest standard of living of any Arab demographic in the entire Middle East and North Africa. Under Israel their population has increased 11-fold, Life Expectancy has nearly doubled, Infant Mortality has dropped 75% and so on. The only Palestinians who ever have to deal with a singlw Israeli are those living in Area C, 48.000 Palestinians. Oppression is what Arabs foist on one another.

#3 sounds like a white man's burden.. Look , Palestinians prefer to be unemployed , poor and free , rather than live in the ficticious "Paradise" that you so falsely envision.
