BETHLEHEM -- (Ma’an) An Israeli soldier was critically wounded early Thursday, during predawn military raids in the occupied West Bank, according to a statement from the Israeli army.

An Israeli military spokesperson said that during detention raids, the Israeli soldier sustained serious injuries resulting from a large rock that was thrown at him and hit his head.

The incident took place during a raid in the the al-Amari refugee camp in the central West Bank city of Ramallah.

The soldier was left unconscious and was immediately transported to the Hadassah hospital in Jerusalem.

Israeli military search and arrest operations are a nightly occurrence in the occupied West Bank and East Jerusalem.

Due to the typically violent nature of the raids, particularly in refugee camps, confrontations often break out between the armed Israeli soldiers and Palestinian youth who respond with stone throwing.
