A large military force stormed Silwad town, east of Ramallah, in the central West Bank, which triggered protests among Palestinian youths who confronted the invading army.

Soldiers responded by firing live ammunition, tear gas canisters, and concussion grenades, injuring one young man with a live round in the leg.

The wounded young man, identified as Abd al-Rahman Abdullah Hamid, 24, was detained by Israeli forces. No information regarding his condition was available at the time of this report.

The army invaded and searched a number of homes, before detaining Abdel Qader Hammad, 23, Ezz El-Din Mohamed Issa Sobh, and Mohamed Lotfi Nemer, and taking them to an undisclosed location.

Israeli media claimed that the detainees were involved in a “shooting attack against an army post,” and that Palestinian resistance fighters exchanged fire with the occupying force during the operation.
