Media sources said several army vehicles invaded the area and fired many gas bombs and shepherds’ tents and at a tent set up by young men on their lands to fend off attacks by illegal colonizers who constantly attempt to occupy them.

They added that a Palestinian woman and her child suffered the severe effects of tear gas inhalation before being rushed to a local clinic.

The soldiers also fired many flares resulting in burning Palestinian farmlands in the town before firefighters rushed to the area and extinguished the fire.
