Israeli forces shot and injured three Palestinians with live fire during clashes that erupted in Qalandiya refugee camp in the central Ramallah district of the occupied West Bank during an exchange of gunfire between Palestinians and Israeli forces who were raiding the camp early Sunday, Palestinian sources said.
During the raid, Israeli forces issued an evacuation notice to the family of Tariq Dweik, which informed the family that their house would be sealed with cement and barred from entry within 48 hours.
Israeli forces also raided the home of Thaer abu Ghazalah, but the troops retreated after Palestinians in the area opened fire on the invading Israeli forces.
An Israeli army spokesperson did not immediately respond for comment.
Israeli forces also detained Ahmad al-Saqa and Ahmad Ibrahim after raiding their homes. The two were reportedly taken to an unknown location.
Israeli forces reportedly retreated during the raid after the Al-Aqsa Martyrs Bridges, the armed wing of the Fatah movement, opened fire at the troops.
Separately, Israeli forces also raided the villages of Kaffr Aqab and Samiramis near Jerusalem and ransacked the houses of families who's relatives allegedly carried out stabbing attacks in Jerusalem, and issued demolition notices.
