Israeli soldiers have shot and injured two Palestinians during scuffles with a group of young people at a refugee camp south of the occupied West Bank.

Palestinian security sources, speaking on condition of anonymity, said Israeli forces raided Dheisheh refugee camp just south of Bethlehem, located about 10 kilometers (6 miles) south of Jerusalem (al-Quds), on Sunday morning to detain a young man at his house.

Clashes then broke out between young Palestinians and Israeli soldiers, and Israeli troopers fired tear gas canisters, stun grenades and rubber-coated bullets to disperse the crowd.

Two Palestinians sustained gunshot wounds, and were transferred to a hospital in the nearby town of Beit Jala to receive medical treatment.
