JENIN (Ma'an) -- At least one was injured as Israeli forces carried out raids on homes across the northern West Bank region of Jenin and stormed the headquarters of the Arab American University at dawn on Friday.

Security sources in Jenin told Ma'an that Israeli forces stormed the headquarters of the university and raided the building of the Dean of Student Affairs and the Student Union, detaining a number of workers and guards who were there for a short period of time.

The sources added that Israeli forces confiscated papers and files from the buildings and in particular from the Student Union, before leaving the university after several hours.

The sources also said that clashes broke out during the Israeli raid in Jenin and one Palestinian was injured after being struck in the shoulder.

Amir Saadi, 17, was taken to the hospital with wounds described as being between minor and moderate.

The sources added that Israeli soldiers raided and searched a number of houses in the region, including Hamas members Khaled Said Abu Hammam and Ibrahim al-Dahbour in Arraba village near Jenin.

An Israeli military spokesperson did not return calls seeking comment.
