HEBRON (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces on Sunday detained four Palestinians from Beit Ummar, north of Hebron, a local committee said.

Mohanad Yousef Awad, 19, Khaldoun Mohammad Awad, 19, and Ali Ikhlayyil, 18, were arrested on their way to work in Jerusalem, said popular committee spokesman Mohammad Awad.

Also Sunday, forces raided the homes of brothers Ahmad and Jamal Abu Hashem.

The residents were forced to wait on the street while their homes were searched.

Israeli forces handed notices to Jamal Abu Hashem's sons Khalil, 26, Issam, 23, Tariq, 20, and Mohammad, 17, summoning them for interrogation at Etzion police station.

At the station, Tariq Abu Hashem was arrested and sent to the Ofer detention center near Ramallah.

Clashes broke out in Beit Ummar after the raid, and Israeli forces fired tear gas and plastic-coated steel bullets, Awad said. They also fired live ammunition in the air.

Several people suffered from tear gas inhalation, including a pregnant woman, Awad said.
