Reports said an army unit sneaked into the camp in a civilian bus in order to apprehend people.
Young camp residents clashed with the soldiers, who fired live bullets at the youths injuring the four before leaving the camp after detaining two brothers whose father was previously killed by Israeli soldiers.
“In 2019, Israeli security forces killed 133 Palestinians, including 28 minors. Of the casualties, 104 were killed in the Gaza Strip, 26 in the West Bank (including East Jerusalem) and three within Israel,” Human Rights group B’tselem reported.
“Most of these deaths were a direct outcome of Israel’s reckless open-fire policy, authorized by the government and military and backed by the legal system,” the group added.
