Rocks Thrown; Police Shoot

In Israel?

No, Turkey.

Syrian refugees clash with police in Turkish camp

AKCAKALE, Turkey (Reuters) - Syrian refugees threw rocks at Turkish military police who fired teargas and water cannon on Wednesday...dozens of protesters threw stones and smashed the windows of a fire truck.

Camp residents said young men started the protest after faulty electrics set a tent on fire which injured three brothers aged seven, 18 and 19.

A Turkish official said a "commotion" had broken out after the fire, but that the situation was now under control and declined to give further details.

Another Turkish official said the fire was not the cause of the incident and that it had been started by residents outraged when guards turned away around 200 Syrians trying to get into the site which is already full, home to 35,000 people and one of the largest in Turkey.

Protesters said many people were wounded in the clash, something Turkish officials denied.

Does that say something about Arabs?
