Nablus - Ma'an - Israeli forces on Thursday morning apprehended 23 Palestinians from different West Bank districts, claiming they were 'wanted activists.'

Ma'an's correspondent in Nablus said that Israeli forces raided the northern West bank town of Beita south of Nablus, imposing a curfew and ransacking several homes before arresting 18 Palestinians.

Fierce clashes erupted between Palestinian citizens and the invading Israeli forces who fired gunshots, sonic bombs and tear gas canisters injuring 17-year-old Hussain Sabri. He was shot in the shoulder and was taken to hospital.

Israeli media sources said the army arrested 23 Palestinians in the West Bank overnight.

Two days ago, gunmen opened fire on an Israeli bus at the main crossroads near Beita. Fatah's Al-Aqsa Brigades claimed responsibility for the attack.
