BETHLEHEM (AA) – A Palestinian youth was injured on Sunday in an Israeli raid in the West Bank city of Bethlehem, according to local residents.
An Israeli force raided the town of Nahalin, west of Bethlehem, and searched several homes, triggering clashes with dozens of angry youths, the residents said.
Israeli forces fired live ammunition, rubber bullets and tear gas canisters to disperse angry Palestinians, according to the same source.
“A Palestinian youth was injured when he was shot in the chest,” a local resident told Anadolu Agency.
The Palestinian Health Ministry has yet to confirm the injury.
There was no comment from the Israeli military on the raid.
Israel frequently conducts sweeping arrest campaigns across the occupied territories on the pretext of searching for “wanted” Palestinians.
