Palestinians clash with Israeli forces in Hebron

Aug. 26, 2013 5:04 P.M. (Updated: Aug. 28, 2013 9:16 P.M.)
HEBRON (Ma'an) -- Angered by the killing of three Palestinian men in Qalandia refugee camp by Israeli forces, youths clashed Monday afternoon with Israeli forces in Hebron.

A Ma'an reporter observed young men throwing stones at an Israeli military post stationed at the entrance to Shuhada Street in the center of the Old City.

The street has been closed and controlled by Israeli forces since 1994 after a Jewish extremist shot dead 29 worshipers and injured more than 100 while they were performing prayers at the Ibrahimi Mosque.

Israeli troops showered the demonstrators with tear gas, stun grenades and rubber-coated bullets.

Witnesses said at least two young men were hurt, and another was detained.

An Israeli military spokeswoman did not immediately return calls.
