QALQILIYA (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces on Sunday shot and injured three Palestinians with rubber-coated steel bullets during clashes at the northern entrance to the village of Azzun east of Qalqiliya, medics said.

The Palestinian Red Crescent told Ma'an that in addition to the three who were shot, at least 25 others had suffered excessive tear gas inhalation.

Locals told Ma'an that the clashes broke out after protesters marched to the village's northern entrance demanding that Israel release 15-year-old Kreman Akram Sweidan, who was detained on Sunday outside a nearby a settlement for alleged possession of a knife.

Israeli forces have shot and wounded thousands of Palestinians with both live and rubber-coated steel bullets since a wave of popular unrest swept the occupied Palestinian territory at the beginning of October.
