On Sunday, a Palestinian child suffered a heatstroke when Israeli soldiers detained many schoolchildren and activists while distributing free books and school supplies to children in Masafer Yatta, south of Hebron, in the southern part of the occupied West Bank.

Fuad Jabour, the coordinator of the Protection and Steadfastness Committees in Masafer Yatta and Southern Hebron Hills, said the soldiers stopped and detained many school children and the activists who accompanied them near the al-Fakheet community.

Jabour added that the children and the activists were distributing free books and school supplies to the children in various schools in Masafer Yatta, subject to constant violations by the Israeli soldiers and the illegal colonizers.

He said the soldiers detained the children and forced them to wait in the sun for several hours before one child, Sinmar al-Amour, suffered heatstroke and fainted.

Palestinian medics rushed to the area and provided the child with the needed medical treatment.
