BETHLEHEM, Monday, January 16, 2023 (WAFA) – A 14-year-old child was critically injured this morning during an Israeli army assault on Deheisheh refugee camp in the southern West Bank city of Bethlehem, according to the Ministry of Health.
Palestinian security sources told WAFA that a large Israeli army unit raided Deheisheh camp and searched homes to arrest activists.
During the raid, camp youths pelted the forces with stones, who replied by firing live ammunition and tear gas canisters at the youths shooting a child with a live bullet in the head.
The child was rushed to hospital where he was reported in critical condition.
The soldiers left the camp after detaining a 24-year-old youth following a raid at his family home.
