HEBRON (Ma'an) -- A Palestinian man suffered a critical head injury on Wednesday in clashes with the Israeli army in Yatta in the southern West Bank.

Mohammad Kamal Abu Qbaieta was hit in the head by a tear gas canister and taken to Al-Mezan Hospital, a Ma'an reporter said.

Clashes broke out in Yatta after Israeli forces raided the town and detained Yousif Ibrahim Nawajaa, a disabled grocery store owner.

Locals threw stones at the soldiers, who responded by firing tear gas and sound grenades.

An Israeli military spokesman said on Wednesday that he was looking into the incident.
