A Palestinian man wounded during clashes with Israeli soldiers at Arroub refugee camp, in northern Hebron early Sunday, was snatched from an ambulance by Israeli soldiers and dropped at the entrance of the camp late at night.

The 20-year-old man, Ahmad Abu Rayya, was hit in the leg by a live bullet fired by Israeli soldiers during clashes at the camp, according to medical sources.

After a Red Crescent ambulance took him to transfer him to hospital in Bethlehem, soldiers stopped the ambulance and removed Abu Rayya, driving him to an unknown destination.

The army took Abu Rayya from near the Gush Etzion settlement block, north of Hebron, and brought him back late at night, leaving him at the camp’s entrance, the Red Crescent said.

Abu Rayya was taken to a hospital in Hebron for treatment.

Meanwhile, Addameer recorded 6,198 Palestinians were detained by Israel as of October, 280 of which were children. The group has estimated that some 40 percent of Palestinian men will be detained by Israel at some point in their lives.
