Child injured in Silwan clashes

JERUSALEM (Ma'an) -- A Palestinian child sustained a rubber bullet wound to the leg and another injury to his face after he was hit by a stun grenade during clashes in the flashpoint East Jerusalem neighborhood of Silwan on Monday afternoon, locals said.

Locals identified the child as Suleiman Siyam, 12, who was injured when clashes broke out in Silwan after undercover Israeli forces raided the Beir Yacoub neighborhood.

During the raid, locals said four 12-year-olds were detained by forces for allegedly participating in clashes with Israeli forces in the area. Several residents suffered from tear gas inhalation.

Spokesman for Israel's National Police Mickey Rosenfeld said officers were deployed to the scene after stones were thrown at homes. Riot dispersal means were used, he said, including stun grenades but said no injuries were reported in the incident.

Rosenfeld further said a "number of youngsters" were detained for questioning that immediately following clashes "things were relatively quiet."

On 22 September a Palestinian was killed in Silwan by an Israeli settler guard, prompting days of unrest across the flashpoint neighborhood.
