4 detained near Salfit, 1 injured

Aug. 13, 2014 4:19 P.M. (Updated: Aug. 14, 2014 10:03 P.M.)
SALFIT (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces raided the Deir Istiya area in Salfit early Wednesday and detained four Palestinians while shooting live bullets and stun grenades, the mayor said.

They were among at least 12 detained overnight in the occupied West Bank.

The mayor said Israeli forces detained Muhammad Maher Farid, Muhannad Abd al-Qader Zeidar, Youssef Ahmad Abd al-Qader Zeidan and Khalil Muhammad Khalil Hakim.

The house of Munir Mansour was turned into a military post, Ayyub Abu Hajla said. The house, which was still under construction, was raided because it is on a main road used by both Israeli and Palestinian vehicles.

Clashes often erupt in the town, especially on the western entrance which Israeli soldiers shut with rocks and barriers.

Locals repeatedly attempted to re-open the entrance but soldiers shut it every time.

Israeli forces confiscated thousands of acres during the last few months, and the town is surrounded with settlements.

A youth from Deir Istiya was injured in the hand with live fire on Monday.

Earlier an Israeli army spokeswoman told Ma'an that soldiers arrested 12 Palestinians in the West Bank.
