BETHLEHEM (Ma’an) – A teenage Palestinian boy was injured during clashes south of Bethlehem late Friday between local young men and Israeli troops who raided a refugee camp and detained two men.

In addition, Israeli troops detained 22-year-old Muhammad Jamal Nasser, a student of French language at Al-Najah National University in Nablus.

Israeli forces also raided the al-Bathan area north of Nablus and detained a former Palestinian prisoner, according to Palestinian security sources.
