Local sources in occupied East Jerusalem reported, on Wednesday evening, that the army invaded Silwan town and clashed with local youths, who hurled stones at them, and fired gas bombs and rubber-coated metal bullets leading to several injuries; the army also kidnapped two residents.

Palestinian medical sources stated that several residents suffered the effects of tear gas inhalation, while at least four residents were injured by rubber-coated metal bullets fired by the army.

The clashes took place as the locals were holding a welcome ceremony for a detainee who was released from an Israeli detention facility when the soldiers invaded the area, and attacked them.

It is worth mentioning that undercover forces of the Israeli army were also extensively deployed in the area.

Local sources said that one soldier was wounded, but Israeli sources did not confirm the news.
