OCCUPIED JERUSALEM, (PIC)– Israeli occupation forces (IOF) used a new type of gas to disperse demonstrators near Qalandia refugee camp in occupied Jerusalem that leads to fainting and soreness in the eyes.

Witnesses said that the IOF troops failed to enter the camp due to the fierce resistance by its inhabitants who used stones and empty bottles to defend their camp.

The excessive use of force on the part of the IOF troops, including rubber bullets, stun grenades, and water cannons spraying chemicals and waste water, injured 120 Palestinians who were treated in a make-shift clinic inside the camp.

Israeli police said that seven young Palestinians were arrested in Silwan town, south of the Aqsa Mosque, in the wake of the clashes that erupted in various areas in the holy city as the Palestinians were commemorating the Naksa or the fall of eastern Jerusalem along with West Bank and Gaza Strip in the hands of Israeli occupation back in 1967.
