July 15, 2014 1:04 P.M. (Updated: July 15, 2014 1:04 P.M.)
JERUSALEM (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces detained five Palestinians late Monday during clashes in the town of Abu Dis.

Clashes erupted following a demonstration against the Israeli military offensive in the Gaza Strip.

A spokesperson for a local popular committee told Ma'an that dozens demonstrated against the war on Gaza before Israeli forces fired tear gas, stun grenades and rubber-coated steel bullets at the crowd, inuring 3 people.

Two of the detainees are paramedics with the Red Crescent, Ismail Hajja and Samed Qbeisha.
