HEBRON (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces raided Yatta City in the southern occupied West Bank district of Hebron, on predawn Friday.

Rateb al-Jbour, coordinator of the National and Popular Committee in southern Hebron, said that Israeli forces raided the Yatta village and broke into several Palestinian homes belonging to the al-Najjar family.

Israeli forces also surrounded the home of Badr al-Jbour, broke into it and thoroughly searched it.

Israeli forces raided the home of another resident, identified as Moussa Younis Muhammad; soldiers handed Muhammad a summon notice for interrogation.

Al-Jbour added that violent clashes broke out between Israeli forces and Palestinians, during the raid; Israeli forces fired tear-gas and stun grenades causing dozens to suffer tear-gas inhalation.

Palestinian Red Crescent crews arrived to the scene to provide medical treatment and said that those suffering from tear-gas inhalation were mostly women, children and elderly.

Al-Jbour confirmed that a Palestinian youth sustained moderate injuries, however, his identity remained unknown.

Israeli raids into Palestinian towns and villages are near daily occurrence in the occupied West Bank and East Jerusalem.
