Israeli forces shoot, injure 3 youths during West Bank clashes

BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces on Thursday shot and injured three Palestinian youths in the central West Bank village of Beit Duqqu, northwest of Jerusalem, locals told Ma'an.

The three youths were shot and injured in their lower extremities and evacuated to a nearby hospital in moderate condition, locals said.

In addition to the three injured, three others were detained, two of whom were identified as Naji Bassam Daoud and Muhammad Ismail Rayyan, both 17 years old.

An Israeli army spokesperson did not immediately respond for comment.

Locals said Israeli forces raided the village and ransacked several homes.

During the raid, clashes broke out and Israeli forces opened fire with live bullets and heavy tear gas.

Over 14,000 Palestinians were injured by Israeli military forces during 2015, including injury from excessive tear gas inhalation, rubber-coated steel bullets and live ammunition, according to documentation by the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs.

The majority of those injured last year were injured during clashes with Israeli forces.
