RAMALLAH, June 8 (Xinhua) -- At least six Palestinians were injured Wednesday night during clashes with Israeli soldiers in the West Bank city of Ramallah, the Palestinian Ministry of Health said.
The ministry said that among the six, two were moderately injured after being shot by live ammunition and the others were injured by rubber bullets.
Palestinian security sources and eyewitnesses said that dozens of Israeli military jeeps and armored vehicles stormed several neighborhoods in the city of Ramallah and located snipers on the roofs of several buildings.
Eyewitnesses said that the Israeli army forces surrounded the home of Islam Al-Faroukh, a Palestinian charged with involvement in the double remote bombing attack in Jerusalem in 2022 and imprisoned in an Israeli jail.
They said that fierce clashes broke out in the area between dozens of Palestinian stone throwers and the Israeli soldiers, who fired teargas, rubber bullets, and live ammunition to disperse the Palestinian protestors.
West Bank tension has been flaring since early January. The Israeli army has been carrying out daily raids on Palestinian towns and cities in response to attacks carried out by Palestinians. ■
