invasion become clashes

From a reader:  ""In the raid, an undercover force, reportedly disguised as vegetable merchants, entered the village first. When youths started throwing stones and a riot broke out, regular forces came in and dispersed the crowd with rubber-coated bullets and tear gas."

"According to an IDF source, the operation began at 10 am, when the force entered the village. At some point, a tactical decision was made to go from a cover operation to an overt one. The troops, including Shin Bet officers and auxiliary forces, encompassed an area stretching 15 buildings."
