Israeli army vehicle torched during clashes in Hebron-area village

HEBRON (Ma'an) -- Clashes erupted between Israeli forces and Palestinian residents in the village of Sair in the southern occupied West Bank district of Hebron on Monday night, during which an Israeli military vehicle was set on fire.

Locals told Ma’an that the clashes broke out when Israeli troops carried out a raid in the neighborhood of al-Duwara, although no detentions were reported.

An Israeli army spokesperson told Ma’an that they were looking into the reports.

Israeli raids in Palestinian towns, villages, and refugee camps are a daily occurrence in the occupied West Bank. Due to the typically aggressive nature of the raids, clashes often erupt between local Palestinian youth who throw stones and are met in response with live fire, rubber-coated steel bullets, and tear gas, often resulting in serious, sometimes fatal, injuries.

Israeli authorities carried out an average of 95 army raids a week in Palestinian communities since the beginning of the year, according to United Nations documentation.

According to prisoners rights group Addameer, 6,200 Palestinians were being held in Israeli prison as of May.
