Palestinians suffer tear-gas inhalation in Hebron

Sept. 8, 2018 12:56 P.M. (Updated: Sept. 8, 2018 1:54 P.M.)
HEBRON (Ma'an) -- Several Palestinians suffered tear-gas inhalation during clashes that erupted with Israeli soldiers during a raid to the Beit Ummar town in the southern West Bank district of Hebron, on Friday evening.

Activist Muhammad Ayyad Awad said that several locals who suffered tear-gas inhalation were treated in the field by Palestinian Red Crescent teams.

Awad added that Israeli soldiers interrogated several residents of the area during the raid.

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 dunums of Palestinian land confiscated for the constriction of illegal Israeli settlements and bypass roads.
