13 injured in clashes near Ramallah

RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- Thirteen Palestinians were injured in clashes with Israeli forces near Ofer detention center in Ramallah on Friday, onlookers said.

Seven people were shot with live bullets, a Ma'an reporter said.

Five were hurt with rubber-coated steel bullets. A journalist was struck in the back with a tear-gas canister.

The clashes broke out after Israeli forces attacked Palestinians who were performing Friday prayers there. The afternoon prayer was held near the detention center to protest Israel's refusal to release to a fourth group of veteran Palestinian prisoners.

Palestinians responded by throwing rocks, the Ma'an reporter said.

An Israeli army spokeswoman said forces fired at "rioters" who threw rocks and burning tires at security forces.

The spokeswoman said five people were lightly injured by riot-dispersal means.
