Israeli soldiers invaded, on Saturday evening, Beit Ummar town, north of the southern West Bank city of Hebron, and attacked Palestinian protesters, causing many to suffer the effects of teargas inhalation.

Media activist Mohammad Awad said many soldiers invaded Abu at-Toaq area, near the main entrance of Beit Ummar, and fired a barrage of gas bombs and concussion grenades at the protesters, and several surrounding homes.

Many Palestinians, including children, suffered the effects of teargas inhalation, and received the needed treatment by local medics.

Awad added that the soldiers repeatedly invade the area, and constantly attack Palestinian farmers to force them out of their lands.

Similar attacks are also frequently carried out by illegal colonialist settlers, squatting on private Palestinian lands.

In related news, dozens of armed colonists, accompanied by many soldiers, invaded the Old City of Hebron, and harassed many Palestinians.
