A number of Palestinians were injured on Saturday, during clashes which broke out with Israeli occupation forces in the town of Beit Ummar, north of Hebron in the occupied West Bank, according to local sources.

Mohammad Awad, a local activist, told WAFA that soldiers raided and ransacked a house and a bakery in the center of the town, prompting clashes with residents who confronted the forces with stones.

Soldiers fired tear gas and stun grenades at residents and homes causing a number of suffocation cases, he said.
