Clashes in Nabi Saleh as Israeli forces detain 54-year-old man

RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- Clashes erupted on Thursday morning after Israeli forces stormed the village of Nabi Saleh north of Ramallah in order to detain a 54-year-old Palestinian man.

Locals told Ma'an that Israeli troops raided the village and ransacked the home of Fadil Tamimi, 54, "brutally assaulting his family members" before detaining him.

As a result, fierce clashes broke out between soldiers and angry villagers, who "showered" Israeli military vehicles with stones. The soldiers deployed in the streets as a result, firing stun grenades and tear gas canisters at the protesters.

Separately, Israeli forces also stormed the nearby village of Deir Nitham, firing stun grenades in the streets.

Neither the Israeli military nor the police had any information on the raids.
