RAMALLAH: Israeli soldiers opened fire on demonstrators in the West Bank north of Ramallah on Saturday, wounding four of them, Palestinian medical sources said.

The shooting happened near a refugee camp at Jalazon during a protest against stone-throwing attacks by Israeli settlers on Palestinian vehicles, the sources said.

Palestinian security sources, meanwhile, said that three Palestinians have been arrested by Israeli forces near the security barrier separating the Jewish state from the Gaza Strip.

The Israeli military did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
