Local sources said that the army invaded the camp to deliver notices to two of the youths, ordering them to head to a nearby military base for interrogation.

The invasion led to clashes with local youth who threw stones and empty bottles at them, while the soldiers fired gas bombs, concussion grenades, rubber-coated metal bullets and several rounds of live ammunition.

Medical sources said several residents suffered the effects of tear gas inhalation, and received treatment by local medics.

The soldiers served Younis az-Zaghary and Ayman Mheisin with military warrants ordering them to head to the Etzion security and military base, to the south of Bethlehem, for interrogation.

In related news, soldiers invaded the Fahma village and Ya’bad town, near the northern West Bank city of Jenin, broke into and violently searched several homes.

Local sources said that the soldiers took pictures of the exterior and interior of the invaded homes in Fahma village, and withdrew later on.

The soldiers also invaded Ya’bad town, firing concussion grenades and installing a military roadblock at its main entrance.
