A Palestinian medic was injured on Tuesday, while his brother was arrested during clashes with Israeli forces at the Dheisheh Refugee Camp located south of Bethlehem in the West Bank.

Local sources reported that Israeli soldiers shot medic Alaa Al Balaawi’s foot at close range during a confrontation between the two parties.

Israeli forces then raided Al Balaawi’s home, assaulted his father and arrested his brother, Shahrayar.
