Israeli forces detain father of slain Palestinian teen from Halhul, clash with locals

HEBRON (Ma'an) -- Clashes erupted in the Hebron-area town of Halhul in the southern occupied West Bank district of Hebron on Wednesday during an Israeli raid into the town, just shortly after an Israeli security guard had shot and killed Halhul resident Hamzeh Youssif Zamaareh, 19.

Zamaareh was shot by an Israeli security guard at the illegal Karmei Tzur settlement near Halhul after he allegedly stabbed a second security guard, who was reported have been lightly injured.

After the alleged attack, Israeli forces raided Zamaareh’s family house and detained his father, Youssif.

The raid prompted clashes with youth who threw rocks and paint cans at Israeli military vehicles.

The Palestinian Red Crescent reported that they treated 29 Palestinians during the clashes: seven with rubber-coated steel bullet injuries, three for assault and 19 who suffered from tear-gas suffocation.

Local activist Muhammad Ayyad Awad told Ma’an that Israeli soldiers showered the area with tear gas and rubber-coated steel bullets, adding that forces detained a teenageridentified as Khaldun Mansour Karajeh, 18, after assaulting him.
