Jerusalem – Ma’an – Dozens of Palestinians including journalists were injured as fierce clashes broke out on Monday in Shu’fat refugee camp after Israeli civil and paramilitary police stormed the camp and detained dozens.

Confrontations erupted near the military checkpoint at the main entrance to the camp after young Palestinians pelted Israeli soldiers with stones and empty bottles. Soldiers responded by firing tear gas, rubber-coated bullets and stun grenades.

As a result, several correspondents and photojournalists were hurt. Amongst them were Samir Abu Gharbiyya, a cameraman working for the Qatar-based Al-Jazeera International, Amir Abed Rabbo, cameraman of Panet news, and Diala Juweihan, working for Quds Press.
