5 injured in clashes after Israel kills teenager in Hebron

Dec. 13, 2012 9:45 A.M. (Updated: Dec. 14, 2012 4:14 P.M.)
HEBRON (Ma’an) -- Clashes erupted in Hebron early Thursday with Israeli soldiers in the southern area of the city, injuring five Palestinians, medics reported.

Israeli forces fired tear gas directly at Palestinians and five were hospitalized.

Forces also detained four teenagers. They were identified as Sadam Mazen Idres, Fares Shehdeh Dawood, Yazan Rabee Ghaieth, and Hussein Majdi Banat, all between 8 and 14 years old.

An army spokesman confirmed the clashes since early Thursday.

The angry confrontations began overnight between residents and Israeli soldiers, who deployed to the area in large numbers after killing a Palestinian teenager.

An Israeli border guard officer on Wednesday shot dead 16-year-old Muhammad Ziad Awad Salaymah, in Hebron's Old City.

Israeli police said the victim appeared to be carrying a fake pistol.

"Initial findings are that he had a fake pistol that he pointed at the officers at the time of the incident," police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld told Ma'an late Wednesday.

Two other Palestinians have been killed in Hebron in clashes with Israelis in the past month.
