NABLUS (Ma'an) -- An Israeli soldier was struck by a rock on Saturday while he was detaining a boy during clashes in Beit Furik east of Nablus.

Local sources told Ma'an that clashes broke out between Jewish settlers from the nearby settlement of Elon Moreh and dozens of Palestinians in the eastern neighborhood of the village of Beit Furik.

Israeli soldiers approached the clashes and fired dozens of tear gas canisters and stun grenades toward the Palestinians, locals said.

They added that an Israeli soldier was wounded during the clashes after a rock struck his head as he was detaining Najeh Faysal Najeh Nasasrah, 16.

Dozens of Palestinian youths suffered from excessive tear gas inhalation during the clashes, the sources said.

An Israeli military spokeswoman said that "a number of Palestinians were hurling rock at soldiers," and one was struck by a rock.

She said that the soldier was "slightly injured in his shoulder."

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.
