Israeli military forces stormed on Monday morning a refugee camp in East Jerusalem and arrested dozens of Palestinians.

Local sources in the camp told Xinhua that a large force of Israeli soldiers reinforced by military bulldozers stormed the Shu 'fat refugee camp in the north of East Jerusalem, who raided houses and arrested dozens of young men.

Israel deems Jerusalem as its indivisible capital, while the Palestinians want the east section of the holy city as capital of their future state. Hence, conflicts between Israelis and Palestinians in the region happen every now and then.
