Clashes erupt as Israeli forces raid Palestinian stores near Qalandiya

April 18, 2019 3:51 P.M. (Updated: April 19, 2019 10:24 A.M.)
JERUSALEM (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces escorted Israeli municipality staff raiding the surroundings of the Qalandiya refugee camp north of occupied East Jerusalem, on Thursday afternoon.

Israeli forces and municipality staff raided stores and removed vendor carts close to the street.

The Israeli police issued tickets against drivers of vehicles holding Israeli plates, and stores for tax-related reasons.

Israeli forces were heavily deployed around the military checkpoint separating Jerusalem City from the refugee camp.

Clashes erupted between locals and Israeli soldiers, during which soldiers fired live bullets, rubber-coated steel bullets and tear-gas bombs.
