TULKAREM (Ma'an) -- A Palestinian teenager was injured and a man was detained after clashes broke out between Palestinians and Israeli forces in the northern West Bank Wednesday, locals told Ma'an.

Witnesses said Muhammad Ali Hassan Haddad, 13, was injured after being hit in the head by shrapnel from a stun grenade that Israeli troops fired at Palestinians in a neighborhood in western Tulkarem.

Additionally, Israeli forces detained 22-year-old Samir Riyad Tamim during the clashes, locals said.

Several youths suffered from excessive tear gas inhalation as Israeli soldiers fired tear gas grenades.

An Israeli army spokeswoman confirmed that a Palestinian was "lightly injured" and another was detained, saying that Israeli forces dispersed a "riot" in the area.

The spokeswoman said several Palestinians were hurling rocks at Israeli "security personnel."

At one point, she said, a Palestinian approached an Israeli soldier with a brick to the point where the soldier felt "threatened." The soldier "followed the rules of engagement," and shot live bullets at the Palestinian's lower extremities.

However, the soldier "did not identify a hit."

The spokeswoman said that the Palestinian who was detained has since been released.

The internationally recognized Palestinian territories of which the West Bank and East Jerusalem form a part have been occupied by the Israeli military since 1967.

The 13-year-old CHILD has no business being part of the clashes, and his parents bear responsibility for Not Saying "No".

Tibi, your post is a good exmple of one of the cheap and paltry arguments used to continue the illegal Israeli occupation of Palestinian land, that is to blame the victim. The soldiers with all their military might are the aggressors, the perpetrators...Israel bears responsibility for Saying "Yes" to continue systematic human right abuses against the Palestinians.
