Medical sources said seven Palestinians were hit by live bullets, one of them shot in the back and is reported to be critical and another in the stomach, while one person was hit in the head by a rubber bullet.

A large Israeli army force raided Qabatya in the early morning hours and surrounded the house of Alaa Omar Zakarneh, a former prisoner, for several hours before arresting him, said the security sources.

Palestinians clashed with the soldiers during the raid, who fired live bullets, tear gas canisters and rubber-coated metal bullets at the Palestinians, leaving 11 persons injured.
