Police publish footage of Border Police officers clashing with Palestinian gunmen in a refugee camp in the West Bank city of Tulkarem this morning.

The headcam video shows the moment a hand grenade exploded, wounding five officers, including three seriously.

According to an initial probe, an officer hurled the grenade toward Palestinian gunmen, but hit a metal gate and bounced back. Another officer managed to kick the grenade to the side, moments before it exploded.
