JENIN (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces raided a Jenin village early Tuesday leading to clashes with locals, witnesses said.

Five military vehicles raided the town of Silat al-Harithiya and fired tear gas in the center of the village, causing dozens of students to suffer from excessive tear gas inhalation, locals told Ma'an.

Israeli forces set-up a checkpoint along a road linking areas of the village and searched passing vehicles.

Locals threw stones and empty bottles at Israeli forces.

Israeli soldiers also took photos of the home of Ragheb Jaradat, who was killed in 2002 and whose body is being held in Israel.

No detentions were reported.

An Israeli spokeswoman said she was not "familiar" with the incident.

The internationally recognized Palestinian territories of which the West Bank and East Jerusalem form a part have been occupied by the Israeli military since 1967.
