HEBRON (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces detained a Palestinian from the al-Shuyukh village in Hebron and injured a family member while raiding their home Thursday afternoon, local residents said.

Moussa Halayqa’s home was raided by Israeli forces who detained his son Qassam, 25, a local activist Ahmad Halayqa said.

Qassam’s brother Muhammad, 17, was injured in the foot when Israeli forces shot him with a rubber-coated steel bullet during the raid.

Halayqa added that Israeli forces had come to Qassam’s home in the early morning on Thursday when he was out, and returned in the afternoon to detain him.

Israeli forces detained Qassam’s brother Majd about a week ago while their father, Moussa, is also in Israeli custody.

An Israeli army spokesperson didn't have immediate information but said they would look into the incident.

Thursday's events come as Israeli forces routinely carry out detention raids throughout the occupied West Bank, including areas under full jurisdiction of the Palestinian Authority.

The forces have carried out a weekly average of 83 detention raids since the start of 2015 according to documentation by the UN Office of the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs.

Such raids often result in injury of local residents protesting the incursions as well as bystanders.
