NABLUS, West Bank, Feb. 5 (UPI) -- An Israeli military raid that occurred overnight in a West Bank refugee camp left two young Palestinian men injured and four others detained, locals said.

Israeli military vehicles stormed the al-Fara camp at 2 a.m. Wednesday, the Ma'an Palestinian news agency said.

Young Palestinian men began clashing with the soldiers, throwing stones and empty bottles at them.

Israeli troops fired ammunition in response.

A 27-year-old sustained a gunshot to the abdomen and a 23-year-old was hit in the hand, Ma'an said.

Locals said the Israelis detained four young men -- Muhammad Kamil Abu al-Summan, 26, Abed Fathi Mansour, 20, Yousif Jabir Abu Siyam, 18, and Mujahid Sawalmah, 21.

An Israeli army spokesman said only one person was arrested, and soldiers recovered a machine gun and ammunition.
