JENIN (Ma'an) -- Four Palestinians were injured and beaten by Israeli forces during a raid in the Jenin refugee camp in the northern occupied West Bank city of Jenin in the predawn hours of Friday.
Clashes erupted after more than 20 Israeli military vehicles raided the Jenin refugee camp just before dawn on Friday.
Palestinian security sources told Ma’an that three youths were injured with rubber-coated steel bullets. Muhammad Lamiya Dbaya was injured in the leg while Ishaq Rafiq Abu Shahla and Malik Muhammad Amr were injured in the chest.
Locals added that Israeli soldiers also assaulted Amr Nashat Marie, 19, during clashes.
All of the injured were taken to the Jenin Governmental Hospital for treatment.
An Israeli army spokesperson said they were looking into reports.
Israeli forces have repeatedly come under harsh criticism for what rights groups have deemed as “excessive force” against protesters and people who did not pose an immediate danger or threat at the time.
