Clashes today in Abu Dis. Students from the Abu Dis Boys School were sent home early as Israeli soldiers were throwing tear gas inside the school. The army surrounded the school and later the university (which has been closed for the day as well) and the sound of tear gas and sound bombs, as well as live ammunition could be heard all around Abu Dis. 40 people were injured.
Here are some pictures, which show the tear gas inside and around the university and the damage to its building. Unfortunately, this didn't just happen today, but happens repeatedly in Abu Dis.
