Israeli forces shoot, injure teen during clashes in Nablus

NABLUS (Ma’an) -- Israeli forces on Sunday shot and injured a Palestinian youth with live fire during clashes in Beit Furik village in the northern occupied West Bank district of Nablus, a member of a local committe told Ma'an.

Munadil Hanini, on the village's central committee for the popular struggle, said that Israeli forces shot 18-year-old Muhammad Hamadna al-Imor in the back during clashes in the village, and detained four Palestinians from the area.

The four detainees have not yet been identified.

Hanini said Israeli forces entered the village, provoking clashes, on the claims that Palestinian youth from Beit Furik had been throwing stones at passing Israeli cars in the area.

An Israeli army spokesperson said "dozens of Palestinians" were throwing rocks in the area, but could not confirm clashes in the village.

Over 10,300 Palestinians have been injured by Israeli forces since Oct. 1, not including those injured by Israeli settlers.

Around 160 Israelis have been injured by Palestinian individuals during the same time period, according to documentation by the UN Office for the Coordination for Humanitarian Affairs.
