Several Palestinians suffered the effects of teargas inhalation, on Monday evening, after Israeli soldiers invaded the al-Khader town, south of Bethlehem. The army also stormed and occupied a home in the town. Eyewitnesses said several army vehicles invaded the Western area of al-Khader, stormed and searched the home of Ali Yousef al-Kobar, and used its rooftop as a monitoring post and military tower.

The invasion led to clashes with local youths, who hurled stones at the soldiers, while the army fired gas bombs at the protesters and a number of homes, causing many Palestinians to suffer severe effects of tear gas inhalation.

Palestinian medics provided the wounded residents with the needed first aid, without the need hospitalize any of them.
