JERUSALEM (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces injured two Palestinians and detained one in the Old City of Jerusalem as they dispersed a prisoner release celebration, witnesses said.

Locals told Ma'an that crowds gathered in the al-Suwwana neighborhood to celebrate the release of Omar Shalabi from Israeli prison.

Soldiers fired stun grenades and rubber-coated steel bullets, attacking others with clubs, witnesses said.

One young man was hit in the head by a rubber-coated steel bullet and was taken to al-Maqasid hospital.

Another Palestinian man was also injured and one was detained, locals said, without elaborating.

Omar Shalabi, 22, was released Tuesday morning after spending a year in Israeli custody.

An Israeli police spokesman was not immediately available for comment.
