Rioting Arabs clashed with IDF soldiers Sunday night in the Palestinian Authority town of Azzoun, east of Qalkilya.

”Dozens” were injured and three were shot, according to the Gaza-based Izz a-Din al-Qassam military wing of the Hamas terrorist organization. “Scores of residents suffered the effects of tear gas inhalation,” the Hamas website reported.

Monther Nazzal, head of the emergency unit of the Palestinian Red Crescent (PRC) in Qalqilya, said IDF soldiers “fired dozens of rubber-coated steel bullets, gas bombs and concussion grenades during clashes that took place after the army invaded Azzoun.”

The clashes allegedly came in response to “protests” demanding that Israel free a 15-year-old Arab teen from the town.

Kariman Akram Sweidan was arrested by Israeli security forces who discovered she was armed with a knife while trying to enter Israel at checkpoint.
