Clashes erupt in Duheisha refugee camp

 Gaza,(Alresalah.ps)-- Clashes erupted between Palestinian Authority (PA) security forces and demonstrators at Duheisha refugee camp in the occupied West Bank district of Bethlehem on Sunday evening.

 The clashes broke out when PA forces suppressed a peaceful march organized in Duheisha to protest a legal case against slain activist Basel al-Araj and five other Palestinians who were imprisoned alongside him last year by the PA, as well as to denounce police repression against a similar protest in Ramallah earlier in the day, local sources told the PIC reporter.

 The PA forces used live bullets, tear gas, and sound bombs against the demonstrators who responded by throwing stones at police forces, the sources added.

 A state of tension prevailed throughout the camp following the clashes.
