Israeli soldiers attacked, Friday, dozens of Palestinians, who nonviolently marched following noon prayers in Hebron city, in the southern part of the occupied West Bank.

Media sources said the soldiers chased and removed Palestinian journalists, invaded and searched many homes, and occupied several rooftops to use them as firing posts and monitoring towers.

They added that the soldiers also closed the main road in Bab az-Zawiya area, in the center of Hebron city, and fired gas bombs, smoke grenades and rubber-coated steel bullets.

Several Palestinian youngsters hurled stones at the invading soldiers, while the army pushed more troops into the area.
