HEBRON (Ma'an) -- Dozens of Palestinians suffered from excessive tear gas inhalation after Israeli forces raided a village in the southern West Bank late Thursday, a popular committee spokesman said.
After entering Beit Ummar, Israeli forces fired rubber-coated steel bullets, stun grenades, and tear gas during clashes with Palestinians, Muhammad Ayyad told Ma'an.
He said the clashes lasted two hours.
Additionally, 22-year-old Ahmad Ali Ayyad Awad was detained by Israeli soldiers on his way to work, Ayyad said.
An Israeli army spokeswoman said one person was arrested after a rock-hurling attack.
Awad previously spent two years in Israeli prisons.
