OCCUPIED JERUSALEM, (PIC)– Dozens of Palestinian young men were treated for breathing difficulty in Shufat refugee camp, occupied Jerusalem, on Wednesday night after Israeli forces used teargas in abundance against them.

Local sources said that the Israeli troops closed down the camp’s entrance for a few hours before traffic and movement of citizens going in and out of it.

They added that large numbers of army troops were still positioned at the outskirts of the camp by Thursday morning, spreading fears of a possible large scale incursion.

In the West Bank, Jewish settlers threw stones and empty bottles on Wednesday at Palestinian vehicles passing along the road leading to northern Ramallah villages and to Salfit.

Witnesses reported that a number of cars were damaged but no casualties were suffered.
