BETHLEHEM (Ma’an) -- Israeli occupation forces shot and detained a 15-year-old Palestinian boy overnight Wednesday in the southern West Bank district of Bethlehem, Palestinian security sources told Ma'an.

The boy, Anan Faris Malash, was shot in his leg after allegedly throwing a Molotov cocktail at Israeli forces near Aida refugee camp in west Bethlehem.

Security sources added that over ten Israeli soldiers raided the western entrance of the camp during the early hours of Thursday morning before shooting and detaining the teen.

An Israeli army spokesperson did not immediately respond for comment.

Since the start of 2015, Israeli forces have injured an average of 37 Palestinians a week, according to documentation by the UN's Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs.

Frequent clashes occur in Aida camp, which is bordered by an Israeli military site on the other side of the separation wall that lines the camp.

Over 4,700 refugees live in Aida, an area of .71 square kilometers (.27 square miles), with an unemployment rate of 47 percent, according to UNRWA statistics.
