On Wednesday, Israeli soldiers attacked a funeral procession in Beit Ummar town and fired gas bombs, causing many Palestinians to suffer the effects of tear gas inhalation.

Media sources said the soldiers, stationed at the entrance of the town, fired many gas bombs at dozens of Palestinians marching in the funeral procession of a local woman.

They added that many Palestinians suffered the effects of tear gas inhalation before receiving treatment.

The attack led to protests before the soldiers fired rubber-coated steel bullets and gas bombs at the Palestinians.

The soldiers also invaded the main entrance of the Al-Arroub refugee camp, north of Hebron, and fired gas bombs at Palestinians who protested the invasion and surrounding homes.

In related news, the soldiers closed the iron gate at the entrance of Khirbat Qalqas village, south of Hebron, forcing the Palestinians to take longer, unpaved streets.

The soldiers installed the gate six months ago and have since opened and closed it randomly and without notice.
