Gaza,(DRAH.ps)-- Scores of Palestinian young men sustained injuries during violent clashes on Wednesday evening with the Israeli occupation forces (IOF) at the entrance to Al-Fawwar refugee camp, south of Al-Khalil city.
Eyewitnesses told the Palestinian information center (PIC) that more than 16 young men suffered injuries when the IOF fired a hail of tear gas grenades and rubber bullets at them after they rallied near the only gas station in the camp.
Following the events, the IOF blockaded the camp, closed its entrance and prevented the Palestinian cars from leaving it.
Al-Fawwar refugee camp is located near the bypass road which links Beersheba with Al-Khalil and is used by Jewish settlers and the IOF.
There is also a permanent Israeli military post at the entrance to the camp.
