International Middle East Media Center: A Palestinian minor was shot and injured by Israeli forces, Wednesday, in Aida refugee camp, north of Bethlehem.

The Palestinian News & Info Agency (WAFA) reports that, according to security sources, live bullets were fired toward Palestinian minors in the camp, shooting a 14-year-old in the foot.
He was transferred to a hospital, for treatment, where his condition was described as moderate.
In related news, WAFA reports that the Israeli army has demolished the tent village of Kanaan, on Wednesday, immediately after its construction; eight activists were arrested, according to a local activist.
Hassan Brijiyeh, coordinator of the National Committee against the Wall and Settlements in Bethlehem, said that activists set up a camp in the Jordan Valley, in response to the recent committee recommendation, by Israel, to annex the valley.
He went on to say that Israeli forces attacked the activists, arresting eight.
