JERUSALEM (Ma'an) -- Clashes erupted in the Issawiya and al-Tur neighborhood of occupied East Jerusalem between Palestinian youth and Israeli forces late Friday night.

Israeli forces raided the neighborhoods and closed the entrance of Issawiya and the main street in al-Tur.

Member of local follow-up committee in Issawiya, Muhammad Abu al-Hummus, told Ma’an that Israeli forces used rubber-coated steel bullets and tear gas to suppress youths who threw rocks and Molotov cocktails.

Witnesses in al-Tur said that Israeli forces detained four Palestinians from the village, closed the main street and prevented vehicle entry.

Meanwhile, the Wadi Hilweh Information Center said in a statement that eleven Palestinians, mostly teens, were detained during sit-ins in the streets of East Jerusalem on Friday.
