JERUSALEM (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces shot and injured two Palestinian youths during clashes with protesters in Eizariya east of Jerusalem on Friday afternoon.

During the clashes Israeli forces also detained three protesters after beating them severely, according to local activists.

Hani Halabiyeh, a spokesman for the local popular resistance committee, said that clashes broke out at the Kabsa junction in Eizariya between local youths and Israeli occupation forces.

The clashes erupted after local youths attempted to break a hole in the Israeli separation wall as it cuts through the village and separates it from nearby Jerusalem.

Clashes spread to nearby Abu Dis over the course of the afternoon.

Two Palestinian youths were injured in Eizariya during the clashes and were moved to the hospital for treatment.

Halabiyeh added that occupation forces detained three locals, who were identified as Ibrahim Damdoum, 17, Mahmoud Zaki Halabiyeh, 17, and Abd Afanah, 30.

Halabiyeh said that during the clahses, occupation forces climbed atop local rooftops and had sprayed tear gas canisters and rubber bullets indiscriminately.
