Dozens of Israeli soldiers invaded, on Monday evening, Sa‚Äôir town, northeast of Hebron, in the southern part of the occupied West Bank, and fired live rounds, rubber-coated steel bullets and gas bombs during clashes with local youths.
Media sources in Hebron said an army truck apparently entered Sa‚Äôir by accident, before local youths started hurling stones at it, and that the soldier who was driving it, stepped out and started firing live rounds.
The soldier then called for backup, and within minutes, more than 30 army vehicles invaded the town, leading to clashes. The army said that one soldier was mildly injured.
The invading soldiers fired more rounds and gas bombs, causing many Palestinians to suffer the effects of teargas inhalation.
