Four Palestinians, including wounded teen, detained from West Bank

 

BETHLEHEM, April 26, 2018 (WAFA) – Israeli forces Thursday detained four Palestinians, including a wounded teen, from the West Bank districts of Bethlehem, Jerusalem and Jenin, said security sources and WAFA correspondent.

Israeli forces detained a wounded Palestinian teen during a raid in Duheisha refugee camp, south of Bethlehem.

Troops broke into and ransacked the family home of Hussein Shahin, 17, before detaining him, triggering clashes with youths who protested the raid and attempted to block troops’ passage.

Local youths hurled stones at military jeeps, while troops fired live rounds, rubber-coated steel bullets and gas canisters.

Shahin reportedly was shot with three live rounds in his leg during a military raid into the camp in December.

Meanwhile, Israeli forces conducted a raid into Jaba‘ town, south of Jenin, where they detained a Palestinian young man after storming and thoroughly searching his family home.

This came several hours before Israeli police detained two Palestinians after savagely beating them in the Old City of Jerusalem.

Several women were reportedly shoved out of the way as they attempted to free the detainee from police.
