BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Seven Palestinians were injured with live bullets in clashes with Israeli forces in Aida refugee camp in northern Bethlehem late Sunday, residents said.

They told Ma'an that Israeli forces, with police dogs, raided the camp and fired tear gas, stun grenades and live bullets, injuring seven youths in their lower extremities.

Israeli forces also prevented ambulances from reaching the injured, and fired tear gas at them causing one ambulance driver to suffer from suffocation due to excessive gas inhalation.

Israel forces detained a large number of young men from the camp and searched several houses, a witness said.

Ali Adwan and Issa Sami Abu Srour were shot with live bullets, while Mohammad Omar Badawneh was shot twice in the thighs. The other injured youths were not immediately identified.

Meanwhile, Nabhan Mohammad al-Amouri and Mohammad Fouad Ulayyan were severely beaten.
