TUBAS (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces detained a 24-year-old woman and clashed with Palestinians during a raid on Tubas overnight Wednesday, locals said.

Forces raided Khalid Rashid Sawafteh's home and detained his 24-year-old daughter Sireen Sawafeh. They ransacked the house and confiscated computers, locals told Ma'an.

Palestinians threw stones at the military vehicles and Israeli forces fired tear gas and sound grenades. Omar Abed al-Razaq, 20, was wounded in the clashes and taken to hospital in Nablus.

The head of the Palestinian Prisoners Society in Tubas, Mahmud Sawafteh, denounced Israel's continuous raids, which he said caused fear and panic among residents.

An Israeli military spokeswoman told Ma'an that soldiers arrested three Palestinians overnight in Iktaba, north of Tulkarem, and Dura and al-Tabaqa, southwest of Hebron.
