SALFIT (Ma’an) -- Clashes between Israeli soldiers and residents of a village near Salfit left six Palestinians injured including two journalists, locals and a Ma'an correspondent said.

Israeli forces crossed into the Kifl Haris village north of Salfit with bulldozers to demolish houses there, residents of the village said.

Alaa Dawood, the imam of Hares mosque, told Ma'an that Palestinians threw rocks at the Israeli soldiers who were preparing to demolish several houses they claimed were unlicensed.

Israel's forces brought two bulldozers and several military vehicles.

An Israeli army spokeswoman said two Palestinians were injured by rocks and two others were hurt by riot-dispersal means. She said some 200 Palestinians hurled rocks at Israeli forces.

The four locals were identified as Abed Shamlawi, 42, Mohammad Saber, 30, Ammar Souf, 20, and Bader Dawood, 19. They all choked on tear gas, residents said.

The two injured journalists were Farah Zahalqa of Watan TV and Rouya TV and Majdi Zaid, a photographer for Ma'an.

Forces surrounded the house of Hisham Salamah and ordered the residents of 20 homes in nearby area Umm al-Qutouf to leave in preparation for their demolition.
