Dozens of Palestinians were wounded in clashes with Israeli soldiers who arrived to make arrests at a refugee camp near Ramallah on Sunday.

According to the Red Crescent, 53 people were treated medically, all in light to moderate condition, including ten people wounded by live rounds. Thirteen others were suffered wounds from rubber bullets and the rest by tear gas, the Red Crescent said.

Residents of the Amari refugee camp reported that the Israeli military blocked several main roads in the area before a large number of troops entered the camp and arrested three people – two brothers and the wife of one of the two men.

Earlier, the Palestinian Health Ministry said at least ten people had been wounded by live fire or rubber bullets during the clashes, and that they had been taken to a hospital in Ramallah.
