Soldiers announced to Aida refugee camp: 'If you throw stones, we will hit you with gas until you all die - the youth, the children, the old people'
BETHLEHEM, Occupied Palestinian Territories - Yazan Ikhlayel, 17, was at a community centre in Aida refugee camp in Bethlehem when Israeli forces stormed the camp. Ikhlayel was using his iPhone to film as Israeli jeeps rolled by on one of the camp’s main roads, shooting off tear gas, when a soldier began issuing a message to residents from one of the jeep’s loudspeakers.
“People of Aida refugee camp, we are the occupation army,” the message began.
“If you throw stones, we will hit you with gas until you all die - the youth, the children, the old people, you will all die.”
