The sources added that the soldiers fired dozens of rubber-coated metal bullets at a number of homes in the camp, wounding in the head Mohammad Al-Azraq, 25 years of age.

He was moved to the Beit Jala Governmental Hospital, in the city, suffering a moderate injury.

Several Palestinians received treatment for the effects of tear gas inhalation after the army fired dozens of gas bombs during clashes which took place between the invading soldiers and local youth, who hurled stones and empty bottles at them.

On Saturday, January 21, 2014, soldiers kidnapped five Palestinians, in Aida camp, and took them to an interrogation facility.

Local sources said that dozens of soldiers stormed the camp while firing sound bombs and rubber-coated metal bullets, kidnapping five Palestinians.

On Tuesday, at dawn, soldiers invaded various Palestinian communities in the occupied West Bank, stormed homes and violently searched them, installed roadblocks, and kidnapped at least eight Palestinians.

Israeli soldiers conduct daily invasions and arrests targeting Palestinian cities, towns, villages and refugee camps in different parts of the occupied territories.
