At least four Palestinians were injured during clashes which erupted Monday, at dawn, in Deheishe refugee camp, to the south of Bethlehem, in the occupied West Bank.

According to Al Ray Palestinian Media Agency, local sources reported that clashes erupted between Palestinians and Israeli forces, after they broke into the camp. Soldiers fired live bullets, tear gas and stun grenades towards Palestinians youth, causing injury to four.

Forces raided al-Fara refugee camp in Nablus, overnight, detaining seven Palestinians, locals said.

Witnesses reported at least 15 military jeeps and armored personnel carriers raiding the camp from several directions, upon which dozens of houses were broken into. The house of senior Palestinian People's Party official, Muhammad Mansour, was also raided; he was questioned in the street, while several flags were confiscated from his house.

The names of the detainees, according to Al Ray, are: Ali Wakid, 45, his sons Imad, 26, and Ahmad, 22, Farouq Abu al-asan, 42, Muhmmad Salah Sawalma, 20, Asim Mansour Subih, 47, and Ismail Abu Atieh, 48.

Israeli military forces routinely raid the occupied West Bank and abduct local Palestinian residents, often on the pretext of security questioning.
