Israeli soldiers injured, on Friday evening, many Palestinians in ‘Aseeda area, in Beit Ummar town, north of the southern West Bank city of Hebron, and attacked dozens of protesters, causing many to suffer the effects of teargas inhalation.

The soldiers first invaded the area, and installed a military roadblock, before stopping and searching dozens of cars, and interrogated many Palestinians while inspecting their ID cards.

Several Palestinians protested the invasion, and hurled stones at the army vehicles, while the soldiers fired gas bombs, concussion grenades, and rubber-coated steel bullets.

The Palestinian Red Crescent Society said its medics provided treatment to many residents, who suffered the effects of teargas inhalation.

The soldiers removed the roadblock and withdrew from the town, without abducting any Palestinian.
