BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Clashes broke out on Tuesday between Palestinian youth and Israeli soldiers who raided the Bethlehem-area village of Doha in the southern occupied West Bank to deliver summons to two former prisoners.
Witnesses told Ma'an that Israeli troops stormed Doha and ransacked several homes before local youth clashed with the soldiers and pelted them with stones.
Before they withdrew, Israeli forces delivered summons to Anas Malash and Firas Izziyya, ordering them to appear for interrogation with Israeli intelligence.
An Israeli army spokesperson told Ma’an they were looking into the reports.
Israeli raids in Palestinian towns, villages, and refugee camps are a daily occurrence in the occupied West Bank and East Jerusalem.
Due to the typically aggressive nature of the raids, clashes often erupt between local Palestinian youth who throw stones and are met in response with live fire, rubber-coated steel bullets, and tear gas, often resulting in serious, sometimes fatal injuries.
