Several injuries and arrests in Jerusalem

Occupied Jerusalem (QNN)- Tens of Palestinians were reportedly shot by Israeli forces between the evening of Friday and the early morning of Saturday during confrontations at the Issawiyyeh neighborhood in occupied Jerusalem.

Israeli forces also carried out a large scale arrest campaign, targeting Palestinian young men, mostly from the family of Mihammad Obeid, who was murdered on Thursday by the Israeli police.

The Palestinian Red Crescent said Friday that its medical teams dealt with 50 injuries, 37 of which by rubber-coated metal bullets, 6 had broken bones, and 7 suffocated by tear gas.

The number of those injured by the Israeli police has increased this morning to 80.

Several arrests took place as well against Palestinians. The arrests targeted dozens of Palestinians, including children and whole families.

Violent confrontations have been erupted on Thursday following Israeli police murder of a 20-year-old Palestinian young man (Mohammad Obeid), who has already served over 3 years in Israeli jails and was arrested when he was 15 only.

Israeli police kidnapped Obeid’s body and attacked his family, who was trying to receive their son’s body from Hadasa hospital.
