Days Of Palestine - Jerusalem
At least 16 Palestinian citizens suffered injuries on Saturday evening when the Israeli occupation forces (IOF) assaulted local residents in al-Eizariya town, east of Jerusalem.
The Red Crescent said its ambulance crew provided medical assistance to 16 citizens in Eizariya after they suffered different injuries.
According to local sources, Israeli police forces stormed Eizariya town and directly fired volleys of tear gas canisters at Palestinian homes, which provoked clashed with local youths.
Earlier on the same day, hundreds of Palestinian citizens marched in the funeral procession of 14-year-old Naseem Abu Rumi after the Israeli occupation authority decided to release his body.
A general strike was declared in the town in mourning for Abu Rumi.
Abu Rumi was shot dead on August 15 at al-Silsila Gate of the Aqsa Mosque after he carried out a stabbing attack and injured a police officer. Another child who was walking with him was also injured on the scene.
