Israeli forces fired live rounds during clashes at al-Dheisheh refugee camp in Bethlehem, the occupied West Bank, leaving one Palestinian teen injured, WAFA news reported.

Clashes reportedly erupted after Israeli forces raided the camp, firing live bullets, stun grenades and tear gas bombs. One Palestinian youth was shot with a live bullet in the foot and was transferred to hospital for medical treatment.

WAFA also reported undercover Israeli units raided and ransacked a number of residents’ homes in the camp, before detaining a 20-year-old Palestinian.
