Baladna Radio has reported that the soldiers fired rounds of live ammunition, rubber-coated bullets and gas bombs, leading to two injuries.
Medical sources said that resident Mahmoud Mleitat, 20, was shot by a live round in the back, while resident Rashad Nimir, 21, was shot in the arm.
They suffered mild-to-moderate injuries and were moved to a local hospital.
Furthermore, Ghassan Daghlas, a Palestinian official in charge of Israeli settlements files at the Palestinian Authority, in the northern part of the West Bank, has reported that a number of fanatic Israeli settlers, of the Itamar illegal settlement, stormed the al-Jadou’ area east of the village, earlier on Wednesday, attacking Palestinian houses and property.
The attack led to clashes between local youth and the settlers, Daghlas added.
