Israeli troops have shot and wounded at least 15 Palestinian men in the occupied West Bank.

According to Palestinian medical sources, the incident took place after the Israeli forces invaded the al-Arroub refugee camp, north of the occupied West Bank city of al-Khalil (Hebron), Press TV reported.

Medical sources further noted the Israeli soldiers fired dozens of rubber bullets at Palestinians, wounding them.

Local sources also said that the Israeli troops prevented the residents from leaving or entering the camp. The move prompted clashes between Palestinian residents and the Israeli forces.

Meanwhile, a Palestinian man was killed and two children were wounded in an Israeli air strike on the Gaza Strip on Wednesday.

The incident comes four days after two Palestinians were wounded in an attack by Israeli troops in the Gaza Strip.

On January 4, a Palestinian youth, identified as Adnan Abu Khater, succumbed to his wounds a day after Israeli forces shot him in the leg in the Jabalia city, located four kilometers north of Gaza City.
