Israeli soldiers invaded, on Thursday at dawn, the Deheishe refugee camp, south of Bethlehem in the occupied West Bank, abducted two Palestinians and shot one.

Media sources said dozens of soldiers invaded the refugee camp after surrounding it, searched and ransacked homes, before abducting Fares Hasan Shamarkha, 35, and Ismael Tawfiq al-‘Ayasa, 19.

The invasions, violent home searches and abductions led to protests in the refugee camp, before the soldiers fired many live rounds, rubber-coated steel bullets and gas bombs.

Medical sources in Bethlehem have confirmed that a young man, 25, was shot with a live round in the thigh, and was moved to a hospital in the city. Several Palestinians suffered the effects of teargas inhalation.

During the violent searches of homes, the soldiers assaulted Ali Sami Shahin and his family, causing cuts and bruises.
