HEBRON (Ma'an) -- Dozens of Palestinians demonstrated in Hebron's Old City on Tuesday to protest the closure of a military checkpoint by Israeli forces, witnesses said, after it was burned down by a firebomb.

A sit-in protest was held in front of a checkpoint in al-Shuhada street in the city, which has been closed since Friday.

Israeli forces reportedly told Palestinian residents to "look for another way to cross the street," locals said.

The checkpoint is the only access point for students of the Qurtuba school.

Israelis soldiers fired stun grenades at protesters to disperse them.

The checkpoint was destroyed last week when local Palestinians hurled a Molotov cocktail at the structure.

Israeli soldiers said the checkpoint would be opened after maintenance work was completed.
