RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces early Wednesday shot and seriously injured a Palestinian man and detained another after raiding an apartment building in the town of Beituniya south of Ramallah, locals said.

Locals told Ma'an that Israeli soldiers stormed the Khdeir building in the town and broke into an apartment where they opened fire at Ahmad Hussana, hitting him three times.

He was shot twice in the feet and a third time in the waist.

Witnesses said Hussana was left bleeding in the apartment for 30 minutes before soldiers allowed a Palestinian ambulance to take him to the hospital.

The soldiers detained another man from the building, who was identified as Samir Awwad, locals said.

Clashes then broke out in the area between Israeli forces and Palestinian youths, who pelted the the soldiers with stones.

The soldiers responded with tear gas, stun grenades, and rubber-coated bullets.

No injuries from the clashes were reported.

Asked about the incident, an Israeli army spokesman directed Ma'an to the Israeli police.

Police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld told Ma'an he knew nothing about the incident.
