Balata vluchtelingenkamp

Clashes broke out Saturday afternoon between PA security forces and Palestinian youths in Balata refugee camp east of Nablus.

Eyewitnesses told PIC reporter that the clashes erupted when PA forces stormed the camp and were deployed in its roads in conjunction with holding a press conference by local activists.

The press conference was scheduled to be held today evening in protest against the distortion campaign waged against the camp and its activists.

However, a state of tension prevailed among the residents as PA forces stormed the camp and tried to prevent journalists’ entry into the camp to cover the press conference.

PA forces heavily fired tear gas bombs during the clashes, the sources added.
