HEBRON (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces detained at least five Palestinians and injured another between Friday evening and early Saturday morning across the occupied West Bank, including a teenager and a Palestinian Presidential Guard member.

To the north in the occupied West Bank district of Jenin, Israeli forces raided the eastern part of Jenin city, detaining three Palestinians and injuring another when clashes broke out being Israeli soldiers and locals.

Palestinian security sources told Ma'an that Fawzi Abu Daqqah, 21, was injured with a rubber-coated steel bullet and was taken to Jenin Governmental Hospital for treatment in a light-to-moderate condition, while others suffered from tear gas inhalation.

Sources said Israeli forces detained three youths during the raids, identified as Thaer Jihad Ahmad Hathnawi, Abdullah Ahmad Diyab al-Husari, and Abd al-Rahman Faisal Qasim.
