Israeli soldiers close streets, prevent entry to mosques; two youth injured

Sept. 29, 2008 11:50 A.M. (Updated: Sept. 29, 2008 11:50 A.M.)
Ramallah - Ma'an - Two Palestinians were injured when clashes broke out between Israeli forces and Palestinian youth in the West Bank village of Ni'lin.

Mayor of Ni'lin Ayman Nafi reported the entry of dozens of Israeli military jeeps into the area Sunday evening, which closed streets and banned Palestinians from entering local mosques for the evening prayers. As a result, fierce clashes erupted in the center of the village.

Those injured from the clashes were 22-year-old Muhammad Srour and 25-year-old Nabil Fayiz, who were hospitalized in Sheikh Zayid Hospital in Ramallah.

Nafi said Israeli forces erected a permanent checkpoint at the village's main entrance.
