Witnesses: Israeli forces raid Jenin village, injure dozens

JENIN (Ma’an) — Seven Israeli military vehicles entered the Palestinian village of Jaba in the northern West Bank district of Jenin on Sunday, eyewitnesses said.

During the raid, clashes broke out between local Palestinians and Israeli forces in the Ein al-Sharqiya neighborhood.

Palestinians threw stones and empty bottles at Israeli forces while Israeli soldiers fired tear gas grenades and sound bombs toward Palestinians and their properties.

Dozens of Palestinians suffered from excessive tear gas inhalation as a result of the clashes, witnesses said.

Israeli forces stationed themselves in the village for an hour before repositioning at the main entrance to the village, sources said. No detentions were reported, and the motives for the raid are unclear.

An Israeli spokeswoman did not return calls seeking comment.
