BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces raided Aida refugee camp near Bethlehem late Sunday, where they shot and arrested a Palestinian youth, the Palestinian Prisoners' Society told Ma'an.

The society quoted the family of 20-year-old Hamza Battah as saying Israeli soldiers shot him in the leg and the abdomen.

Israeli soldiers then detained him and brought him to Shaare Zedek medical center in Jerusalem in critical condition.

No further details were provided.

An Israeli army spokeswoman did not immediately return calls seeking comment.

On Saturday, two Palestinian youths were injured during clashes with Israeli forces.

Aida camp is a frequent site of clashes because it is located beside Rachel's Tomb, which is surrounded on three sides by the Israeli separation wall despite being in the middle of the Palestinian city of Bethlehem.

Israeli forces shot more than 20 youths with rubber-coated steel bullets and live bullets during clashes that occurred almost daily in December and January, and clashes continue to break out occasionally in the area.

There are 19 refugee camps in the occupied West Bank, within which live about a quarter of the 771,000 registered refugees in the territory.

More than 760,000 Palestinians -- estimated today to number 4.8 million with their descendants -- were pushed into exile or driven out of their homes in the conflict surrounding Israel's creation in 1948.

Yet another senseless shooting... After shredding his leg with a high powered assault rifle bullet, he could have been saved.. But to shred his innards, with bullet and bone fragments everywhere... Was just cruel, and sadistic... His life as a normal person is over, if he survives.. I pray for him.. How much longer are the oppressed going to just be passive.. Violence only begets more violence... And the oppressors have inflicted so much pain already.. Such a sick and perverted so

I support a two state solution and am disturbed by shootings by Israelis and well as by Palestinians (such as Barukh Mizrachi, who was shot and murdered and his wife, Hadas wounded, by a Palestinian gunman on Monday night, April 14). Biased (propaganda) articles that try to depict "cruel" and "sadistic" acts as only being perpetrated by one side instead of reporting on the violence committed by both sides, and without explaining why the soldiers came to Aida, add to the spread of hatred.
