Silwan, Jerusalem (SILWANIC) — Sporadic clashes are continuing to erupt throughout Bir Ayyub district of Silwan, with Israeli troops firing tear gas grenades arbitrarily throughout the neighborhood. Eyewitnesses have confirmed that Israeli forces have provoked confrontations by firing gas in otherwise quiet, residential areas. An unknown number of Palestinian residents are suffering aspyhyxiation due to tear gas inhalation and several Palestinian ambulances were seen arriving on the scene.
