SALFIT (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces in Salfit early Sunday smashed a car and fired tear gas at Palestinians, security sources said.

Palestinian security sources told Ma'an that Israeli forces raided the central West Bank city and fired tear gas and stun grenades.

Five locals suffered from excessive tear gas inhalation and were taken to a nearby hospital.

Additionally, Israeli soldiers smashed a vehicle belonging to Salfit resident Nael Yousif Marabta, the sources said.

An Israeli military spokesman said the army conducted a "routine patrol" in Salfit early Sunday.

"Several Palestinians hurled rocks," he said. Soldiers responded with "riot dispersal means."

The spokesman said he was "not familiar with any further incident."
