Palestinians, Israeli troops clash in Hebron; 6 minors detained

HEBRON (Ma’an) -- Israeli forces detained six Palestinian minors in the southern West Bank city of Hebron and al-Tuwani village east of Yatta near Hebron on Friday.

Locals told Ma’an that clashes erupted Friday in Hebron’s Bab al-Zawiya neighborhood between young Palestinian men and Israeli troops who detained three minors.

On Thursday, Israeli troops detained five minors in Hebron before the Palestinian military liaison department convinced the Israelis to release two of them. Three remained in custody including a 10-year-old boy. The Israelis claimed they were involved in throwing stones at Israeli vehicles.

In al-Tuwani, a small village east of Yatta south of Hebron, Israeli troops stormed several homes before they detained three minors. Local sources identified them as 15-year-old Sami Hafith al-Harini, 15-year-old Malik Ghanim al-Harini and 15-year-old Basil Suleiman al-Adra.

During the Bab al-Zawiya clashes, Palestinian protesters hurled two fire bombs. An Israeli soldier caught fire and sustained minor burns.

An army spokeswoman did not immediately return calls.
