Days of Palestine – Ramallah
Three Palestinians dawn Friday sustained injuries from Israeli military gunfire in Ramallah city, according to security sources.
They confirmed that Israeli forces raided several neighborhoods of Ramallah city, including Qaddura refugee camp, located next to Ramallah government hospital, known as Palestine Medical Complex, triggering confrontations with local youngsters.
The soldiers fired live bullets, rubber-coated steel bullets and grenades towards protestors, injuring three; one with a live round in the hand and the two others with rubber-coated steel bullets in the feet.
Soldiers also barged their way into al-Bireh city.
Israeli forces frequently raid Palestinian houses almost on a daily basis across the West Bank on the pretext of searching for “wanted” Palestinians, triggering clashes with residents.
These raids, which take place also in areas under the full control of the Palestinian Authority, are conducted with no need for a search warrant, whenever and wherever the military chooses in keeping with its sweeping arbitrary powers.
Under Israeli military law army commanders have full executive, legislative and judicial authority over 3 million Palestinians living in the West Bank. Palestinians have no say in how this authority is exercised.
