RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- A Palestinian youth was injured and four others detained during a raid by Israeli forces in the Qalandiya refugee camp early Friday, locals and medics said.

An unidentified youth was shot in the leg with live rounds, whileMuhammad Ibzei, 21, Ali Khalid Hamad, 19, Ammar Mteir, 27, and Mustafa Fayyaleh, 20, were detained.
