HEBRON (Ma’an) -- A Palestinian man was wounded when Israeli forces raided his home in the southern West Bank city of Hebron overnight Thursday, witnesses told Ma'an.
Hosni Matrabeh, 48, lost consciousness when a soldier threw a sound bomb which exploded near his head, his relative Jamal Asaifan Matrabeh told Ma'an.
He said around 30 soldiers had raided their home in the Wadi Husain district, near the Israeli settlement Kiryat Arba.
The troops said they were searching for someone who had shot at a building in the area which is controlled by the Israeli army, Matrabeh added.
An Israeli army spokeswoman said she was not familiar with the incident.
