Israeli soldiers shot, Tuesday, a Palestinian teenage boy, and abducted two young men including a former political prisoner, in the al-Am’ari refugee camp, in Ramallah in the central West Bank.

Media sources said several army vehicles invaded the refugee camp, leading to protests before the soldiers fired live rounds, including expanding bullets, and tear gas bombs.

They added that the soldiers shot a boy, 17 years of age, with an expanding bullet in the leg, before he was rushed to a hospital in Ramallah. Many Palestinians suffered the effects of tear gas inhalation.

In addition, the soldiers invaded and searched homes in the refugee camp before abducting Ahmad at-Toukhi and a former political prisoner, identified as Mahmoud ad-Dasht, 21.
