is north of Ramallah on the main road leading to Nablus . One should understand that a refugee camp is full of people who were driven out of their homes during the 1948 Nakba. During the second Intifada , the IDF sealed the camp with concrete 55 gallon metal drums to restrict vehicular movement. For example , NO AMBULANCES could respond to medical emergencies within the camp. Now those already traumatized people have to deal with yet another one of their kids shot dead. You try to convince them to live in peace with Israel , side by side. Good luck Israel.
