RAMALLAH, (PIC)– The IOF announced on Thursday night the closure of the Shuafat roadblock until further notice due to violent clashes between IOF troops and Palestinian youth at the Shuafat refugee camp and which resulted in the injury of a Palestinian young man and his arrest by the IOF.

Local sources said that the clashes ensued when IOF soldiers manning the road block provoked the Palestinian youth by firing teargas towards a group of them near the roadblock injuring one of them and proceeding to arrest the injured youth.

The IOF deployed reinforcements which raided the refugee camp and imposed a security cordon around the camp on the pretext that they were searching for youth who threw a petrol bomb at the occupation soldiers.
