Media sources in Hebron said the soldiers invaded Za’ta area in Beit Ummar town, north of the city, and fired a barrage of gas bombs, concussion grenades, and rubber-coated steel bullets at local protesters, and surrounding homes, causing many Palestinians to suffer the effects of teargas inhalation.

During the invasion into the town, the soldiers abducted Mohammad Ahmad Abu Mariya, 32, a former political prisoner who was held by Israel for five years.

The soldiers also abducted Mo’taz Thieb al-‘Oweiwi, from his home in Hebron city, in addition to Eyad Ayman Aby Oleyyan, 18, from Yatta town, south of Hebron, and Walid Hussein Mizyin, 44, from the al-‘Arroub refugee camp, north of the city.
