Local sources said that the soldiers clashed with local youth in ‘Anza village, and that one child, identified as Hamza Abdullah Sharabty, 14, was shot by a rubber-coated bullet in his leg, while dozens of residents were treated the effects of tear gas inhalation.

The soldiers also invaded Zabbouba village, west of Jenin, and clashed with dozens of local youth who threw stones and empty bottles at them. The soldiers fired gas bombs, causing several Palestinians to suffer the effects of tear gas inhalation.

Eyewitnesses said the soldiers were driving in the village’s streets in a provocative manner, and closed some roads, an issue that led to clashes; no arrests were reported.

Earlier on Sunday, soldiers invaded Hebron, in the southern part of the West Bank, and kidnapped five Palestinians, including one child.
