However, eyewitnesses in Jenin said that the two brothers were wounded by live fire as well as from the explosive. The residents added that soldiers had taken the two brothers, Muhammad and Abed Al-Jadeon, into custody.

The brothers were evacuated from the scene on stretchers, residents said, adding that one brother sustained injuries to his upper torso and the other to his legs. Their condition, residents said, remains unknown.

Following the brothers' arrest, clashes ensued between the military and Palestinians in the refugee camp.

Fadael Al-Jadeon, Muhammad and Abed's father, said that his sons were sleeping when the door exploded. He said that Muhammad was seriously wounded. "My sons were asleep and didn't show any resistance. I saw both [of my sons] wounded and being carried away on stretchers. One of them had suffered a profound gunshot wound to his neck. I don't know why they did this to them, or why they were even arrested."
