Israeli soldiers injured, on Thursday evening, several Palestinians in Beit Ummar town, north of Hebron, in the southern part of the occupied West Bank.

Media activist Mohammad Awad said several army jeeps invaded the ath-Thaher area, south of Beit Ummar, and attacked protesters with live rounds, gas bombs and concussion grenades.

Awad added that the soldiers randomly fired gas bombs and concussion grenades, many of them striking homes in the area.

The Palestinian Red Crescent Society (PRCS) said its medics rushed to the area, and provided the needed treatment to many Palestinians who suffered the effects of teargas inhalation, and added that some of the wounded fainted due to the severe effects.

In related news, the soldiers invaded Shu’fat refugee camp, in occupied Jerusalem, before storming and ransacking several homes.
