Palestinians say a raid by Israeli soldiers disguised as vegetable vendors to seize a wanted man has sparked clashes in the northern West Bank.

Residents in the town of Tamoun say youths are tossing stones and bottles at Israeli troops, while the soldiers have responded with what appears to be live fire. Resident Faris Bisharat says eight men have been wounded, some by live fire.

Bisharat says the clashes began early Tuesday after Israeli forces dressed as merchants arrested one man. He says regular forces then entered the town, and men began hurling rocks at them to prevent other arrests.
