Witnesses: 2 injured in Nablus arrest raid

July 10, 2013 12:17 P.M. (Updated: July 11, 2013 2:46 P.M.)
NABLUS (Ma'an) -- Two Palestinians were injured in clashes with Israeli forces during an arrest raid in Nablus early Wednesday, witnesses said.

Israeli forces raided the al-Junied neighborhood of Nablus and ransacked homes and university dorms before detaining 20-year-old Mahmoud Abdul-Halim Talahmah.

Talahmah, from Bethlehem, is a student at the An-Najah National University in Nablus.

Dozens of young Palestinians protested the raid, and clashed with Israeli forces who fired tear gas, stun grenades and plastic-coated bullets.

Witnesses said Ahmad Abu Eisha, 20, was hit by a plastic-coated bullet. Hassan Abu Ahmad, 21, was hit by a tear gas canister.

Several others suffered tear gas inhalation.

An Israeli military spokeswoman said forces arrested one Palestinian in Nablus, and another in the southern West Bank city of Hebron early Wednesday.

She told Ma'an that around 50 Palestinians rioted in Nablus, hurling rocks and firebombs at Israeli forces who responded with riot dispersal means.
