Dozens injured in Jenin clashes after undercover Israeli arrest raid

TUBAS (Ma'an) -- At least thirty people were injured during clashes in a Jenin village on Tuesday after an undercover Israeli arrest operation in the area, Ma'an's correspondent said.

Israeli forces raided the village of Tamoun, south Jenin and arrested Murad Bani Odeh, a member of Islamic Jihad, leading to clashes with residents, a local official told Ma'an.

At least thirty people were wounded in the clashes, with live ammunition, rubber bullets and tear gas fired by Israeli soldiers, head of a local committee against settlements Ahmed Assad said.

One man was hit in the eye with a tear gas canister and taken to hospital for treatment and over 100 people suffered smoke inhalation from tear gas.

Dozens of Israeli military jeeps arrived in the area as reinforcements during the clashes and set up checkpoints at the entrances to the village, preventing people from leaving, Assad added.

Locals said that the Israeli soldiers were disguised as vegetable vendors during the arrest operation, The Associated Press reported.

The soldiers were part of Israel's Mistaarvim, or Arabized, elite unit, Israeli media reported.
