Eyewitnessed told WAFA that Israeli occupation forces stormed the camp, triggering confrontations, and opened fire towards the camp residents, hitting two minors with rubber-coated steel bullets and causing dozens of others to suffocate from tear gas.

The minors were rushed to a hospital for urgent treatment. The suffocation cases received treatment at the scene.
Israeli forces frequently raid Palestinian houses almost on a daily basis across the West Bank on the pretext of searching for “wanted” Palestinians, triggering clashes with residents.
