Three Palestinians were injured early Thursday in clashes with Israeli forces in the Jenin refugee camp, locals said.

Israeli forces raided the camp and surrounded the Tawalba mosque and a kindergarten under construction, searching for a wanted Palestinian, locals told Ma'an News Agency.

Residents of the camp threw stones at the soldiers, who fired plastic-coated steel bullets and sound grenades, locals said.

Mohammad Matahin, Mohammad Soos and Muamin Soos were hit by plastic-coated bullets and dozens of Palestinians suffered from tear gas inhalation, they added.

The Israeli army said soldiers conducted a "routine overnight activity" in the camp and that Palestinians threw rocks at the forces.
