BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Ten Palestinians were injured, including seven with live bullets, as Israeli forces raided the al-Duheisha refugee camp in Bethlehem city in the southern occupied West Bank on Thursday morning.

Two of the seven Palestinians that were injured with live fire were reported to be in critical condition, while the other three injuries were with rubber-coated steel bullets.

Medical sources in the Beit Jala Governmental Hospital identified one of the critically injured as a schoolboy, named Muhammad Mizher.

Mizher was reportedly walking to school when he was shot with a live bullet that hit his spinal cord, putting him at serious risk of paralysis.

Another youth was critically injured and was identified as Jihad al-Atrash.

Israeli special forces raided several houses in the camp, and detained one Palestinian, identified as Maali Maali, 34. He was transferred to an unknown location.

Clashes erupted in the camp during the raid, with soldiers heavily firing live bullets, rubber-coated steel bullets, stun grenades and tear-gas bombs in the camp.
