An Israeli jeep is pelted with rocks in the Qalandiya refugee camp in the West Bank.

Palestinians are showing their anger in more ways than one after three people were killed by Israeli gunfire during a dawn raid on the camp. Peace talks scheduled for this afternoon were called off as a result.

Tensions remain high at the Qalandiyah check point. Young people gathered to hurl stones at the Israeli officers and bins were set ablaze.

The clashes broke out earlier on when Israeli forces entered the camp on a raid to arrest a suspect according to Israeli border police.

Emotional funerals for the three killed were held later in the day under a heavy presence of militant groups.

It is the deadliest incident to happen in the area for years.
