HEBRON (Ma’an) -- Israeli forces detained a teenage boy during a weekly protest held in Hebron village Beit Ummar on Saturday, locals and security officials said.

Spokesman of the local anti-separation wall committee Yousef Abu Maria said forces seized Hussain Ramzi, 14, during the demonstration.

An Israeli army spokesman said a teenager had been detained by police at the scene.

Abu Maria said Israeli settlers participated in the clash, and injured Imad Khalil Abu Marsa, 25, whose arm was broken.

Meanwhile, Saqr Abu Maria was hit in the foot by a sound bomb, and Younis Musa Arar, Ahmad Khalil Abu Hashem and an unnamed American activist were also injured, he said.

On Friday, the Popular Resistance Committee said Israeli forces fired rubber bullets at a protest in Beit Ummar marking Land Day, injuring four protesters.

Residents of Beit Ummar hold weekly protests against Israel's confiscation of their land.
