RAMALLAH (Ma’an) -- Israeli forces shot a Palestinian youth in the head with a live bullet when clashes erupted on Friday in the occupied West Bank district of Ramallah in the village of Silwad, while four Palestinians, three of whom minors, were detained by Israeli forces during clashes near Israel’s Ofer detention center.

In the village of Silwad in northeastern Ramallah, Israeli forces detained a Palestinian youth after shooting and injuring him after clashes erupted in the area.

Local sources said that Israeli forces had chased the 18-year-old and opened live fire on him, injuring him in the head with a live bullet. His condition was reported as critical.

Sources added that Israeli forces had transferred him to an unknown location in a military vehicle. The youth has not yet been identified.

Meanwhile, Israeli forces detained three Palestinian minors and a youth during clashes that erupted after a march was organized near the Ofer detention center in western Ramallah.

The march set off from Ramallah city and headed to the detention center in solidarity with hunger-striking Palestinian prisoners.

Israeli forces fired rubber-coated bullets, sound bombs, and tear gas at protesters, who responded by throwing rocks at Israeli soldiers.

Israeli forces then raided the village of Beituniya and chased Palestinian youths, detaining four and transporting them to the Ofer detention center.

An Israeli army spokesperson told Ma’an she would look into reports of the incidents.
