Israeli army wounds two, detains 12 Palestinians in West Bank

By Xinhua,

Ramallah : An Israeli army force shot and wounded early on Thursday morning two Palestinians in Balata refugee camp near Nablus in northern West Bank, medics and Palestinian security sources said.

The sources said that the force stormed the refugee camps of Balata and opened fire at two Palestinian civilians who were on their way to work, adding that they had been taken to a Nablus hospital for treatment.

Meanwhile, the sources said that another Israeli army force stormed the refugee camp of Askar, also near Nablus in the West Bank and arrested 12 Palestinians after storming several houses in the refugee camp.

In the West Bank, there is no truce between Israel and the Palestinians, where the Israeli army carries out daily raids on Palestinian towns and refugee camps and detains Palestinians, saying they are wanted by Israeli security forces.

Official Palestinian statistics said that there are around 11 thousand Palestinians imprisoned in Israeli jails. The Palestinians call on Israel to free them.

Egypt brokered a truce between Israel and Gaza militant groups for six months on condition that Israel stops military raids on the Gaza, eases the blockade imposed on the enclave and allows in more goods and products.
