JENIN (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces and Palestinians clashed in the Jenin town of Yabad on Sunday following an Israeli arrest raid, locals said.
Seven Israeli military vehicles stormed Yabad and positioned themselves near the Yasser Arafat primary school, witnesses told Ma'an.
Young men from the town gathered in the area and threw stones at the soldiers, who responded by firing tear gas and stun grenades.
Israeli soldiers stopped Palestinian vehicles and used them as shields during the clashes, witnesses said.
Muhannad Ahmad Abu Bakr, 29, Majd Mahmoud Abu Bakr, 17, and Muhammad Mujahid Abu Bakr, 15, were detained by Israeli forces.
Israeli troops also detained dozens of young men in a local coffee shop for several hours during the clashes before allowing them to leave, witnesses said.
