Israeli forces raid Jenin area village, clash with residents

Aug. 26, 2013 9:20 P.M. (Updated: Aug. 27, 2013 10:14 P.M.)
JENIN (Ma’an) – Two young Palestinian men were hit by rubber-coated bullets, and several others choked as they inhaled tear gas during clashes with Israeli forces in Sanur village near Jenin Monday evening.

Locals told Ma’an that Israeli forces raided the village and ransacked the home of a senior Fatah leader to summon his son to an Israeli intelligence office for interrogation.

An intelligence officer, they said, identified himself as Yaish and he briefly questioned Yazid Habaybi, son of secretary-general of Fatah movement in Sanur Fawwaz Habaybi before he handed him a summons demanding that he appear at Salem interrogation center.

Sources in the Red Crescent said ambulances evacuated two young men to a public hospital in Jenin. Khalil Walad Ali, and Muamin Abu Gharbiyya were hit by rubber-coated bullets in the head and the neck. Several others were hurt by tear gas which Israeli forces fired heavily “as usual,” they said.

Separately, young men clashed with Israeli troops in the village’s center near the main mosque. Witnesses said that young Palestinians pelted the soldiers with stones and empty bottles, and they responded with tear gas and rubber-coated bullets.
