JENIN (Ma'an) -- Four Palestinians were injured after being shot in clashes with Israeli forces that broke out in Qabatiya in the northern West Bank on Wednesday afternoon.
Local sources told Ma'an that clashes erupted after Israeli soldiers raided the area near the Shuhad junction and dozens of Palestinian youths responded.
Palestinians threw rocks and empty bottles, while Israeli forces fired live bullets and tear gas, injuring four.
Mohammad Kamal Tazaza was shot in the hand, Ali Taysir Zakarneh and Nizaruddin Khoza'a were shot in their feet, and Samer Asasaa was hit directly by a tear gas canister, according to local sources.
All of the injured were taken to Jenin hospital.
An Israeli army spokeswoman did not immediately return calls seeking comment.
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.
