TAMOUN, West Bank — Palestinians said Tuesday a raid by Israeli soldiers disguised as vegetable vendors to seize members of a militant group sparked clashes in the northern West Bank.

Residents in the town of Tamoun said youths tossed stones and bottles at Israeli troops, while the soldiers responded with what appeared to be live fire.

Resident Faris Bisharat says eight men were wounded, some by live fire. Bisharat says the wanted men belong to Islamic Jihad, a violent group sworn to Israel's destruction.

Bisharat said 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.

The Israeli military had no immediate comment.
