Palestinian medical sources have reported that several residents have been treated for the effects of teargas inhalation while others were shot by rubber-coated metal bullets fired by Israeli soldiers during clashes with local residents at the main northern entrance of the town of Ar-Ram, and at the Qalandia terminal, north of occupied Jerusalem.

The Palestinian News & Info Agency (WAFA) has reported that dozens of youths clashed with Israeli soldiers trying to invade Ar-Ram town, and that the soldiers fired concussion grenades, gas bombs and rubber-coated metal bullets causing dozens of injuries.

In Qalandia, the soldiers fired gas bombs at dozens of cars and residents heading to a wedding, causing dozens of residents to suffer the effects of teargas inhalation.

The attack led to clashes between local youths and soldiers stationed at the Qalandia terminal.

On Monday at dawn [August 26 2013] undercover forces of the Israeli army infiltrated into Qalandia, shot and killed three Palestinians, and injured dozens of residents including at least 15 who were shot by live rounds of live ammunition.

Medical sources said that resident Jamal Jahjouh, 22, a former political prisoner, was killed by rounds of live ammunition fired by Israeli soldiers invading the camp.

Earlier on Monday at dawn, two Palestinians, identified as Rubin Ziad, 32, and Jihad Aslan, 19, have been shot and killed by live rounds fired by the army.
