On Friday, Israeli soldiers injured many Palestinians in Beit Ummar town, north of Hebron, in the West Bank’s southern part.

Local media activist Mohammad Awad said several army jeeps invaded the Aseeda area in the town, and closed streets, leading to protests.

Awad added that the soldiers fired gas bombs and concussion grenades at the protesters and surrounding homes, buildings, and cars, causing many Palestinians to suffer the effects of tear gas inhalation.

The soldiers also closed the town’s main entrance and prevented the Palestinians from entering or leaving it.
