BETHLEHEM, (PIC)– Israeli occupation forces (IOF) stormed the Doheisha refugee camp in Bethlehem in six armored vehicles before dawn Sunday and fired sonic bombs when they reached its outskirts.

Local sources said that the sound of the explosions woke up the inhabitants and some of the young men ventured into the streets to confront the invading troops.

They said that the soldiers responded to the stone throwing youths by firing rubber bullets and teargas canisters in which they described as “violent” confrontations.

The sources noted that some of those canisters fell in the yards of many houses causing fainting among a number of citizens, while a youth sustained burns in his shoulder when one of those canisters directly hit him.
