Israeli forces shoot, detain Fatah activist in Nablus

NABLUS (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces detained a Fatah activist in Nablus on Wednesday after shooting him in the foot following a two-hour stand off, Palestinian security sources said.

Israeli forces surrounded Sama Sports Club in Nablus after attempting to detain Husam al-Din Abu Riyala, 26, who was issued a summons order last month.

A two-hour standoff followed as Abu Riyala refused to turn himself in to Israeli forces.

Israeli soldiers then raided the building and shot him in the foot before detaining him. He was taken away in an ambulance for treatment.

Meanwhile, Israeli forces detained five Palestinian workers who were trying to cross into Israel without permits.

The workers, who are all from Jenin, were detained by Israeli border guards southwest of Nablus.
