OCCUPIED JERUSALEM, (PIC)– Israeli occupation police forces fired teargas canisters at citizens in Bustan suburb in Silwan town, south of occupied Jerusalem, soon after the Friday congregation.

Local sources said that the confrontations in the suburb expanded to nearby neighborhoods, which are witnessing daily violent clashes between citizens and those forces.

Citizens noted that the police forces used tear gas bombs in an unprecedented manner, which caused breathing difficulty among a big number of civilians including tens of children.

Medical sources said that a young man was hit with a rubber bullet in his spinal cord, describing his condition as “serious”.

The policemen arrested a 21-year-old youth near Wadi Hilwa in Bustan suburb on Friday.
