BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- An Israeli soldier was reportedly wounded during a predawn military raid Sunday into the village of Deir Abu Mashal northwest of Ramallah in the central occupied West Bank.

Israeli media sites reported that clashes erupted after Israeli forces stormed the village, with local Palestinians throwing rocks and Molotov cocktails at soldiers, who targeted the Palestinian demonstrators with bullets and tear gas.

An Israeli solider was reportedly injured by a rock thrown at his face, and transferred to Israel's Rabin Medical Center in the Petah Tikva for treatment.

An Israeli army spokesperson told Ma'an that the incident was under the jurisdiction of border police. An Israeli police spokesperson told Ma'an he could not confirm the reports.

An Israeli army spokesperson previously told Ma'an that no detentions had been made in the West Bank overnight.

Israeli raids in Palestinian towns, villages, and refugee camps are a daily occurrence in the occupied West Bank and East Jerusalem.

Due to the typically aggressive nature of the raids, clashes often erupt between local Palestinian youth who throw stones and are met in response with live fire, rubber-coated steel bullets, and tear gas, often resulting in serious, sometimes fatal, injuries.
