Palestinian Injured in Israeli Raid in West Bank

A Palestinian youth was seriously injured in an Israeli raid in the West Bank city of Al-Bireh on Sunday, according to the Health Ministry.

Israeli forces raided the city and searched a number of houses and shops, triggering clashes with local residents.

Witnesses said Israeli forces used live ammunition, tear gas and rubber bullets to disperse stone-throwing Palestinians, who responded by setting tires on fire.

One Palestinian was seriously injured in the clashes, the Health Ministry said in a statement.

Witnesses said Israeli forces confiscated recordings of surveillance cameras before withdrawing from the area.

The Israeli military has yet to issue an official statement on the raid.
