Palestinian medical sources have reported that several Palestinians suffered the effects of tear gas inhalation, after Israeli soldiers invaded, on Tuesday evening, Beit Ummar town, north of the southern West Bank city of Hebron. Local activists said clashes took place in the ath-Thaher area, in Beit Ummar, after several military vehicles invaded it, and that the soldiers fired rubber-coated metal bullets, and gas bombs targeting protesters and homes causing many Palestinians to suffer the effects of tear gas inhalation.

They added that the soldiers deliberately fired gas bombs into a barn belonging to a local shepherd.

Earlier on Tuesday, soldiers kidnapped three children on Tuesday, including a seventh-grade schoolchild, in the southern West Bank city of Hebron, after searching his bag and locating a compass that he uses in his classes.

In addition, the Israeli authorities, on Tuesday, sealed off a stone-cutting factory and seized a lorry in the town of Beit Ummar.
