NABLUS, October 14, 2014 (WAFA) – A Palestinian Youth Tuesday was shot in the face with a rubber-coated steel bullet , while many others suffocated by tear gas during clashes that erupted in al-Fara’a refugee camp, northeast of Nablus, with Israeli soldiers, according to witnesses.

Anas Na’ajeh, a youth in his early twenties, was shot in the face with a rubber-coated steel bullet, while several others suffered from severe suffocation due to tear gas inhalation. Na’ajeh was transferred to hospital to receive immediate treatment.

Witnesses told WAFA that a large military force raided the camp, opened live fire and used tear gas and acoustic canisters against the unarmed residents.

Israeli soldiers raided several homes, bombing the front doors, and used some residents as human shields. They also raided and ransacked several homes in the area and turned one house into an investigation point.
