3 injured as Israeli forces raid Balata camp

NABLUS (Ma'an) -- Three Palestinians were injured early Friday during clashes with Israeli soldiers near Balata refugee camp near Nablus.

Israeli forces raided the camp just east of Nablus, leading to clashes as local youths protested the incursion.

Israeli soldiers shot live fire and rubber-coated steel bullets at the youths, injuring three.

Palestinian medical sources said that Ahmad Hashash, 23, was hit in his left foot, Muhammad Khader Abdo, 20, was hit in his right hand, and Muhammad Dweikat, 20, was hit with a rubber-coated bullet in his left eye.

The three were then taken for treatment to Rafidia Public hospital in Nablus, where their injuries were described as "moderate."

Israeli forces also raided the Nablus-area villages of Salem, Aqraba and Qablan over night, invading several houses. No detentions, however, were reported during those raids.

The home of Hamas official Ahmad al-Hajj Ali, in al-Ein refugee camp, also known as Ein Beit el Ma, in western Nablus, was also raided over night, for the third time since the beginning of an Israeli arrest campaign three weeks ago.

An Israeli military spokeswoman said that Israeli forces has escorted 1,200 Israelis to pray at the nearby Joseph's Tomb, and that there had been "a bit of rock throwing, nothing special."

Clashes often ensue during Jewish religious visits to the tomb, as Israeli forces deploy heavily across the area and atop local homes without permission.

Israel launched a massive arrest campaign across the West Bank after three Israeli youths went missing from a settlement in the occupied West Bank two weeks ago.

Authorities said that the youths were "kidnapped" and blamed Hamas, an accusation the group has vigorously denied.

Since the beginning of the campaign, eight Palestinians have died during Israeli raids, more than 125 have been injured, and more than 566 have been detained.
