OCCUPIED JERUSALEM, (PIC)– Violent clashes erupted anew in Silwan town, south of the Aqsa Mosque, on Sunday during which citizens threw a firebomb at an Israeli military point in Bustan suburb, according to an Israeli radio broadcast.

Witnesses reported clashes in six suburbs in Silwan between young Palestinians and Israeli occupation forces.

They said that the IOF soldiers used teargas in abundance to quell and disperse the youths, adding that some of the canisters were fired at houses.

The locals said that tens were treated for breathing problems, adding that the soldiers could not storm the Bustan suburb as the young men blocked their repeated attempts to do so.
