BETHLEHEM (Ma’an) -- Israeli forces detained at least four Palestinians and two were injured when clashes broke out between Palestinian youths and Israeli forces during predawn raids Sunday across the occupied Palestinian territory.

In the the southern occupied West Bank district of Bethlehem, Israeli forces stormed the village of Beit Fajjar and detained former prisoner Omar Anwar Thawabtah and briefly detained Yousif Louy Thawabtah before they released and summoned him to meet with Israeli intelligence, locals said.

An Israeli army spokesperson told Ma’an that one Palestinian was detained near Bethlehem.

Israeli forces also detained Muhammad Marwan al-Barghouthi in the northern West Bank district of Qalqiliya, according to the spokesperson and local sources.

Clashes broke out between the Palestinian youths and Israeli forces in the village of Silwad in the central West Bank district of Ramallah when forces raided the village and delivered a summons to a Palestinian man to meet with Israeli intelligence.

The spokesperson for the Israeli army said one Palestinian was detained near Qalandiya in the central occupied West Bank.

In the East Jerusalem neighborhood of Silwan, locals told Ma’an two Palestinians were shot and injured by Israeli forces after the two threw an IED at forces raiding the Palestinian area.

In occupied East Jerusalem, Israeli forces detained Ahmad al-Kiswani, locals said.

An IED also exploded overnight Saturday when Palestinians targeted an Israeli watchtower near Bilal Bin Rabah mosque in northern Bethlehem. In Hebron, Palestinians threw another IED at Israeli forces, locals said.
