Israeli forces injure teen in Kafr Qaddum

QALQILIYA (Ma'an) -- A Palestinian teenager was shot and injured Saturday in clashes with Israeli forces in the occupied West Bank village of Kafr Qaddum.

A spokesperson for the Fatah movement in the Qalqiliya district, Murad Shtewei, told Ma'an that a 17-year-old was "ambushed by Israeli forces" before he was shot with a live bullet in the thigh and a rubber-coated steel bullet in the knee.

Israeli forces then chased the teen down to arrest him, but he managed to escape despite his injuries, Shtewei added.

An Israeli army spokesperson did not have immediate information on the incident.

Around 150 Palestinians were shot and injured on Friday during clashes across the Gaza Strip and the West Bank, joining the over 11,000 Palestinians to be injured by Israeli military forces since the beginning of October.
