2 Palestinians injured in Israeli raid in West Ban

Two Palestinians were injured in an Israeli raid in the West Bank city of Jenin on Wednesday, according to medical sources.

One Palestinian sustained gunshot wounds, while the second was injured by a rubber bullet in Enzah village, the sources said.

The injured were transferred to hospital for medical treatment.

Local residents said clashes erupted between stone-throwing Palestinian youth and Israeli forces during the dawn raid, during which Israeli soldiers used teargas, rubber bullets and live ammunition.

The Palestinian Health Ministry has yet to issue an official statement on the injuries.

The Israeli army frequently raids cities and villages across the occupied West Bank on the pretext of searching for “wanted” Palestinians.
