HEBRON (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces shot and injured four Palestinians on Saturday during clashes in the village of Beit Ummar, in the southern occupied West Bank district of Hebron.

According to a local activist, Muhammad Iyad Awad, Israeli forces raided Beit Ummar and delivered notices to local Palestinian residents threatening the village against further resistance activity against the forces.

Awad said that following this, clashes erupted among Palestinian youths and Israeli forces, who fired rubber-coated steel bullets towards the Palestinians and injured four of them.

Awad added that several of the local residents of the village suffered tear-gas suffocation.

Additionally, Israeli forces confiscated four Palestinian-owned vehicles from the village.

While Beit Ummar's built-up areas are predominantly classified as Area B under the Oslo Accords, the majority of its surrounding land is Area C.

According to the Applied Research Institute of Jerusalem, Beit Ummar is "subjected to many Israeli aggressions," with thousands of dunams of Palestinian land confiscated for the constriction of illegal Israeli settlements and bypass roads.
