Israeli soldiers invaded, on Wednesday evening, the al-Khader town, south of Bethlehem, south of occupied Jerusalem in the West Bank.

Local sources said several armored army jeeps invaded the Bakoush area, in the western part of the town, near the Jerusalem-Hebron Road.

They added that many Palestinians protested the invasion, and hurled stones at the army jeeps, while the soldiers fired rubber-coated steel bullets, gas bombs, and concussion grenades.

The soldiers also closed several roads, before stopping and searching cars, and interrogated several Palestinians while inspecting their ID cards.
