Israeli forces staged a raid into the town and sealed off roads near Al-Quds University, triggering clashes with angry Palestinian youths, residents said.
Israeli forces used rubber bullets and teargas canisters during the clashes, they added.
In a statement, the Palestinian Red Crescent Society said its medics treated 17 Palestinians from Israeli teargas in the area.
There was no comment from the Israeli military on the report.
