Israeli soldiers carried out a detention operation at Bir Zeit University near Ramallah, according to the Times of Israel.
The suspect tried to escape from the scene, and the servicemen opened fire. The IDF reported that a Palestinian was wounded in the leg.
Palestinian media claim that five students were detained during the operation. An Israeli military spokesman said they received reports of only one arrest.
The name of the wounded Palestinian was revealed in the Palestinian press – Ismail al-Barghouti, a student who heads the Hamas-linked faction at the university.
