HEBRON (Ma'an) -- Dozens of Palestinians suffered tear-gas suffocation, on Monday evening, as Israeli forces raided the Beit Ummar town in northern Hebron in the southern occupied West Bank.

Activist Muhammad Ayyad Awad said that Israeli soldiers forces shop owners to close their shops and searched ID cards of Palestinians in the area.

Israeli forces also sealed off the main street in the town, preventing movement by pedestrians and vehicles.

Awad added that Israeli forces distributed flyers warning people of throwing rocks and Molotov cocktails at Israeli settlers' vehicles and buses crossing by the entrance of Beit Ummar.

Israeli soldiers fired tear-gas bombs, stun grenades and rubber-coated steel bullets as clashes erupted with locals.
