Hundreds of Shuafat refugee camp residents were prevented from going to work Wednesday morning as Israeli occupation forces caused significant delays at the checkpoint.
Palestinian children who attended schools on the opposite side of the checkpoint went home disappointed after being unable to pass through.
Footage appeared on social media platforms showed Israeli occupation forces attacking multiple Palestinian kids at the checkpoint.

On Tuesday, an Israeli soldier yanked a young Palestinian lady‘s headscarf, causing her to fall to the ground. This occurred when Israeli occupation forces were positioned at the entrance of the camp and demanding that everyone stay back.
Malak Isseide, a 17–year–old high school student, reported that she sustained bruises from being beaten by Israeli soldiers while she was walking home from school.
