Dozens of Israeli soldiers invaded, on Wednesday at dawn, the Deheishe refugee camp, south of Bethlehem in the occupied West Bank, and conducted very violent searches of homes, before abducting two Palestinians, and wounding two others, including one who suffered serious injuries, during ensuing protests.
Media sources said the soldiers surrounded the home of No’man Abu ‘Ashour, and used loudspeakers ordering his son, Issa, to turn himself in to the army, but he apparently was not there.
They added that dozens of youngsters protested the invasion and hurled stones and Molotov cocktails at the armored military vehicles, while the army fire live rounds, rubber-coated steel bullets, gas bombs and concussion grenades.
During the invasion and ensuing protests, the soldiers moderately injured Mohammad Ra’ed Shamrookh, 19, after shooting him with a live round in the chest.
Another Palestinian was shot with a rubber-coated steel bullet in his leg, and several others suffered the effects of teargas inhalation.
The soldiers also invaded and searched homes, before abducting Hamza Khalil al-Ja’fari, 21, and Monir Khaled al-Ja’fari, 21.
In its worth mentioning that a Palestinian car, owned by Ma’moun Naji, was burnt after the soldiers fired a gas bomb at it.
