25 Palestinians wounded in clashes with Israel army

AL-FAWWAR, PALESTINIAN TERRITORIES: Twenty-five Palestinians were wounded in clashes with Israeli soldiers conducting searches in a refugee camp in the southern West Bank on Tuesday, Red Crescent medics said.
Some of the wounded had been hit by live ammunition, others by rubber bullets, the medics said.
The clashes erupted when a large convoy of Israeli military vehicles entered Al-Fawwar camp, near the flashpoint city of Hebron, witnesses said.
Troops conducted searches and destroyed the wall of a house in the camp, which is home to some 10,000 people.
An Israeli army spokeswoman said the troops were conducting “activity to uncover weaponry” in the cam, when “dozens of Palestinians hurled IEDs (improvised explosive devices), blocks and rocks” at them.
