HEBRON (Ma'an) -- A Palestinian teenager was hit by a high-velocity tear gas canister early Tuesday during clashes with Israeli troops in Yatta in the southern West Bank, a local official said.
Abd al-Aziz Abu Fanar, spokesman for the Yatta municipality, told Ma'an that local teen Tamir Raed Abu Sabha was taken to a nearby hospital after being hit by a tear gas canister.
Clashes took place near NGO offices and the office of the Yatta municipality, Abu Fanar said.
He said Israeli soldiers showered the area with tear gas and stun grenades, causing a state of alarm among residents.
An Israeli military spokesman said a "violent riot" broke out following an arrest raid, with Israeli forces responding with riot dispersal means.
