Israeli soldiers invaded, on Saturday night, Beit Ummar town, north of the southern West Bank city of al Khalil, and injured several Palestinians.

Iran PressMiddle East:  Mohammad Awad, a media activist in Beit Ummar, said several Israeli army jeeps invaded the Abu Toaq area, near the main entrance of the town.

Awad added that the Israeli forces fired many gas bombs at residents in the streets to force them away, in addition to several surrounding homes, causing scores of Palestinians to suffer the effects of tear gas inhalation.

It is worth mentioning that the soldiers frequently invade Beit Ummar, in addition to assaulting farmers on their lands.

The town, and its surrounding areas, are also subject to repeated violations by the illegal colonialist settlers who target the farmers and their lands, and the shepherds, in an attempt to illegally annex their lands.
