Israeli forces detain Palestinian, shoot another with live fire during clashes in Hebron

HEBRON (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces Saturday detained a Palestinian man in the southern occupied West Bank district of Hebron and shot another in the foot with a live bullet as a predawn raid erupted into clashes with Israeli soldiers, locals told Ma’an.

Israeli forces detained Adam Abu Sharar, 30, in the town of Dura on Saturday during an overnight raid that was met with clashes between Palestinian youths and Israeli soldiers.

Locals told Ma’an another Palestinian was injured during the clashes after being shot with a live bullet in the foot. He was taken to the Dura Medical Center for treatment.

An Israeli army spokesperson told Ma'an that Israeli forces opened fire on Palestinian youths in Dura who reportedly threw rocks and Molotov cocktails at the soldiers.

Israeli forces also seized a Peugeot 307 car belonging to Palestinian prisoner Suhayb Jabara al-Faqih during the raid, according to locals.

On Wednesday, five Palestinians were injured with Israeli live fire during clashes in Dura, and dozens of others were injured after being struck by rubber-coated steel bullets and suffering from tear gas inhalation.

The clashes came amid an ongoing Israeli military siege of Hebron, restricting passage through most entrances to the occupied West Bank’s most populous city to humanitarian and military cases only. Partial lifting of certain roadblocks and checkpoints and the re-sealing of others have been reported in recent days, which the Israeli army said is in accordance with "ongoing military assessments."

In the village of Beit Ummar in Hebron Israeli forces also summoned two released prisoners for interrogations with Israeli intelligence.

Israeli forces reportedly raided the homes of Omar Ahmad Ayyad Awad, 29, and Murshid Muhammad Murshid Zaaqiq, 40, during an early morning raid, handing them notices to meet with Israeli intelligence on Sunday at the Etzion military base to the north of Hebron, according to local activist Muhammad Ayyad Awad.

Israeli forces have carried out search and detention raids on Palestinian communities across the West Bank and East Jerusalem on a near nightly basis, with 89 raids being carried out by Israeli forces last week, according to UN documentation.
