RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces early Friday injured two Palestinian youths with live fire in the village of Kafr Malik in the eastern part of the central occupied West Bank district of Ramallah.

The two young Palestinians were hit in the legs with live bullets during clashes with Israeli forces, Palestinian medics told Ma’an.

The severity of the injuries were reported as “moderate” after they were taken to the hospital for treatment.

Israeli forces attempted to carry out detentions raids in the village and were met by Palestinian youths throwing rocks. The Israeli soldiers were forced to withdraw from the village before carrying out the detentions.

Israeli forces shot fired tear gas bombs at Palestinians during the raid, locals said.

An Israeli army spokesperson told Ma’an she was looking into reports.

There has been a weekly average of 92 detention raids carried out by Israeli forces on Palestinian communities in the occupied West Bank since the start of this year, according to UN documentation.
