HEBRON (Ma’an) -- Clashes erupted between Palestinian youths and Israeli forces on Friday in the southern occupied West Bank city of Hebron, as journalists reported being threatened at gunpoint by Israeli forces.

Locals told Ma’an that clashes erupted in the Bab al-Zawiya area in the center of the city, with Israeli forces firing tear gas and rubber-coated steel bullets at Palestinians who threw rocks at the military checkpoint at the entrance of al-Shuhada street.

Israeli forces detained an unidentified Palestinian “youth,” according to sources.

Meanwhile, journalists covering the clashes told Ma’an that Israeli forces forced them to leave the area at gunpoint.

An Israeli army spokesperson said they were looking into reports.
