At least three Palestinians were injured by rubber-coated rounds today fired at them by Israeli occupation forces, during a crackdown on the neighborhood of al-Isawiya in occupied Jerusalem, according to local sources.
Israeli police officers reportedly fired rubber-coated rounds and teargas canisters at a group of young men who were playing with snow, injuring three of them and causing many cases of suffocation from gas inhalation.
The Palestinian Red Crescent (PRC) said an ambulance of its own sustained minor damages after being targeted by the Israeli police.
At least two Palestinians were detained by the occupying forces during the raid on al-Isawiya.
For almost three years now, al-Isawiya has been a frequent target of daily Israeli police assaults. Dozens of heavily armed forces from the Border Guards Police and Riot Police units have used to storm the occupied Jerusalem neighborhood almost every day, raiding and searching homes and arresting dozens of civilians under the pretext of security.
