The IDF detained two members of the Fatah-affiliated al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigade in Jenin on Monday morning, Palestinian news agency Ma'an reported.

IDF forces and Palestinians at the refugee camp reportedly clashed for two hours in the early hours of the morning, with Palestinians reportedly throwing stones and glass bottles at soldiers, and the army reportedly responding with live five and tear gas.

According to Ma'an, the two, Raed Amin Dababa and Mohammad al-Amer, received an exemption from detention in a deal between Israel and the Palestinian Authority signed in 2007 for Palestinian fighters who renounced violence against Israel and gave up their arms.

An IDF spokesperson was not able to comment on the report.
