2 injured in clashes with army near Nablus

NABLUS (Ma'an) -- Two Palestinians were injured Monday in clashes with Israeli forces near Nablus in the northern West Bank, medics said.

Palestinian Authority settlement affairs official Ghassan Doughlas said Israeli soldiers raided Iraq Burin at midday and imposed a curfew.

Local youth threw stones at the troops, and forces fired rubber-coated steel bullets and tear-gas canisters at villagers.

Medics said 17-year-old Amir Arif Qadous was hit in the head by a rubber-coated bullet. He was taken to the Rafedia Hospital in Nablus.

Sakhr Husam Qadous, 24, was evacuated by ambulance to the same hospital after choking on tear gas, Palestinian Red Crescent medics said.

An Israeli military spokesman said there was a military patrol in the area, but that no curfew was imposed.

He said soldiers used riot dispersal means in response to rocks hurled by Palestinians.
