RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces on Thursday raided the village of Deir Nidham north of Ramallah and detained a young man and assaulted a middle-aged woman.
Obeid Naseruddin al-Tamimi, 22, was detained and Muna Mahmoud al-Tamimi, 45, was beaten during the raid.
Clashes subsequently broke out between the raiding Israeli forces and young Palestinian men from the village.
Israeli forces fired tear gas during the clashes, causing several protesters to suffer from excessive tear gas inhalation.
An Israeli army spokeswoman did not immediately return calls seeking comment.
Deir Nidham is a small village completely surrounded by areas under Israeli military control. It is located directly beside the Hallamish settlement, close by to Nabi Saleh, which is the site of frequent protests against the Israeli occupation.
