JENIN (Ma'an) -- A Palestinian was injured by Israeli live fire early Thursday when Israeli forces raided the city of Jenin in the northern West Bank.

Palestinian security sources said that Munadil Taher Kabha, 21, was struck by live fire in his feet after being shot at straight-on by Israeli forces as they raided his home early Thursday.

Israeli forces detained Kabha's brother Mahmoud 28, during the raid as well.

Israeli forces also detained seven Palestinians while raiding and searching the villages of Beit Ummar, Bani Naim and Dura in the southern West Bank late Wednesday.

The spokesman for the local popular committee in Beit Ummar said that Israeli soldiers raided the town early Wednesday and detained four youths after raiding their houses. They named the youths as Alaa Bassam Hamad al-Alami, 18, Youssef Said Ali Sabarneh, 22, who is an ex-prisoner who spent two years in Israeli prisons, Mahmoud Haitham Mahmoud Sleibi, 25, and Asid Muhammad Ahmad Adi, 25, an ex-prisoner who spent five years in Israeli jails.

Muhammad Awad said that clashes erupted as soldiers detained the four, as local youths responded to the raid by throwing rocks at soldiers. The soldiers responded by firing rubber-coated steel bullets and tear-gas grenades, leading to many cases of excessive tear gas inhalation.

Palestinian security sources told Ma'an that Israeli soldiers also raided Bani Naim town in the Hebron district as well and detained Hayil Murad al-Sleihi, 18, and Zain al-Din Moussa Manasrah.

Israeli forces also detained ex-prisoner Muhammad Muhammad Salim Hreibat from Dura, who has previously spent eight years in Israeli prisons.
