Over 20 Palestinians injured during Ramallah raids

RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- Two Palestinian youths were injured during clashes that erupted in the Surda village in the northern central occupied West Bank city of Ramallah, on Tuesday evening, leaving the adjacent al-Bireh City after a raid.

Palestinian Red Crescent teams found a Palestinian youth injured in the leg in a hill in Surda, and transferred him to a hospital for treatment.

Dozens of youths threw rocks and Molotov cocktails at Israeli military vehicles retreating from al-Bireh after a 6-hour raid to the city.

Israeli soldiers heavily opened live fire towards youths, injuring one; he was transferred to a hospital for treatment.

During the 6-hour raid in al-Bireh City, Israeli forces raided several buildings and confiscated surveillance cameras in search for a Palestinian suspected in carrying out an attack in the Israeli illegal settlement of Ofra, last Sunday.

The Israeli army reported that reinforcement was deployed in al-Bireh, pointing out that the search could be for a cell rather than one suspect.

Clashes erupted between Israeli soldiers and Palestinian youths, during which Israeli soldiers fired rubber-coated steel bullets, stun grenades and tear-gas bombs to suppress youths.

The Palestinian Red Crescent told a Ma'an reporter that its teams treated twenty injured Palestinians during al-Bireh clashes; six who were injured with rubber-coated steel bullets, two transferred to hospitals for treatment and 12 who suffered tear-gas inhalation.

Israeli forces threatened journalists of detaining them if they do not leave the clashes area.
