HEBRON (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces opened fire on Palestinians during a raid in the village of Beit Ummar north of Hebron on Monday, injuring two with rubber bullets and causing dozens to suffer from excessive tear gas inhalation.

Spokesman for the popular struggle committee against settlements and the wall in Beit Ummar Mohammad Ayyad Awad said clashes started in Safa area after two Israeli military vehicles raided the area and fired tear gas and rubber-coated steel bullets at people.

"These actions by the occupation forces aim to prevent farmers from reaching their lands in Ein al-Bayad area near the Gush Etzion settlements," Awad said, referring to a large block of Israeli settlements built on confiscated Palestinian lands.

The attack comes five days after Israeli forces killed an 85-year-old Palestinian man by launching excessive amounts of tear gas into his village of Kafr Qaddum, in the northern West Bank, during a raid.

The internationally recognized Palestinian territories of which the West Bank and East Jerusalem form a part have been occupied by the Israeli military since 1967.

The actions are in direct response to residents of Bet Omar being infiltrated by foreign agitators who encourage the residents to violence. The village is known for sending its children out to try and kill Israelis on Hwy 60 on their way to/from Hebron - the city that Palestinians want to ban Jews from and ban access to holy sites their. And, of course, history did not begin in 1967 or 1948. Jews have lived there for the past 3000 years.
