A Palestinian paramedic was injured and his brother arrested by the Israeli occupation forces on Tuesday during clashes that flared up in al-Duheisheh camp, south of Bethlehem.

According to local sources, the Israeli forces opened fire at paramedic Alaa al-Bal’awi and broke into his family home before they attacked his father and kidnapped his brother Shahrayar.

At the same time, three Palestinians were kidnapped by the occupation soldiers from al-Khalil’s northern town of Beit Ummar.

Activist Mohamed Awad identified the arrestees as Muhyi Abu Maria, 21, Wajih Sabarna, 18, and Rashed Za’aqiq, aged 17.

The Israeli troops further showered Palestinian civilian homes with spates of teargas canisters, resulting in several suffocation cases.
