BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) – Israeli troops shot and injured two young Palestinian men on Sunday morning in Duheisha refugee camp south of Bethlehem in the southern West Bank.

Locals told Ma'an that clashes broke out early in the morning between young Palestinian men and Israeli soldiers who raided the refugee camp at dawn to detain a young man from his house. The victims were evacuated to Bethlehem district's public hospital in Beit Jala.

An Israeli army spokeswoman told Ma'an as forces entered the camp, young Palestinians threw a grenade at soldiers who responded with live fire at the lower extremities with .22 caliber rounds. One hit and slight injury was confirmed.

Before they left the camp, Israeli troops detained 26-year-old Bilal al-Sayfi and took him to an unknown destination.

Israeli forces shot and killed Palestinian teenager Jihad Shehada al-Jaafari in Duheisha camp last week.

An autopsy report later showed that the teen was shot in the upper body at close range. Jafaari's father had called for the autopsy in order to document what he called Israeli crimes and violations against Palestinians.
