World Bulletin / News Desk

Israeli forces detained three Palestinians on Friday amid clashes between stone-throwing Palestinian protesters and Israeli troops in eastern Ramallah, eyewitnesses said.

According to the witnesses, the violence erupted after an Israeli military force stormed Silwad neighborhood.

Angry Palestinian youths hurled the Israeli troops with stones and bottles, while the forces responded by firing teargas, live ammunition and rubber bullets, they added.

International law views the West Bank and Arab East Jerusalem as occupied territories seized by Israel in 1967.

After signing the 1993 Oslo Accords with the Palestinian Authority, Israel withdrew from major West Bank cities while retaining control of the rest of the territory.
