Armed Israeli soldier wounded by rock in overnight raid on West Bank refugee camp

BETHLEHEM (M'an) -- An Israeli army soldier sustained minor wounds overnight Wednesday, as Israeli forces raided the al-Duheisha refugee camp in the southern occupied West Bank district of Bethlehem, Israeli media reported.

According to Ynet news, the soldier, whose identity remained unknown, was hit by a rock during the raid.

He received medical attention onsite and was then taken to a hospital for treatment, Ynet said.

An Israeli army spokesperson told Ma’an they were looking into reports.

Israeli raids into Palestinian Authority-controlled towns, villages, and refugee camps are a daily occurrence in the occupied West Bank and East Jerusalem.

Due to the typically aggressive nature of the raids, clashes often erupt between local Palestinian youth who throw stones and are met in response with live fire, rubber-coated steel bullets, and tear gas, often resulting in serious, sometimes fatal, injuries.

Since the beginning of 2017, the United Nations documented a biweekly average of 87 Israeli military search and arrest operations into the West Bank.
