Local sources told WAFA that Israeli forces raided Qalandia refugee camp and took over the rooftops of several buildings, including a Fatah movement headquarters, and turned them into military outposts, leading to clashes.
Forces fired rubber-coated steel bullets, stun grenades, and a barrage of tear gas canisters at residents, shooting and injuring two youth, including a shot to the eye. Dozens reportedly suffocated due to tear gas inhalation.

“In 2019, Israeli security forces killed 133 Palestinians, including 28 minors. Of the casualties, 104 were killed in the Gaza Strip, 26 in the West Bank (including East Jerusalem) and three within Israel,” Human Rights group B’tselem reported.
“Most of these deaths were a direct outcome of Israel’s reckless open-fire policy, authorized by the government and military and backed by the legal system,” the group added.
