IMEMC & Agencies: Palestinian medical sources in Hebron, in the southern part of the occupied West Bank, have reported that three Palestinians have been injured, on Wednesday evening, and dozens suffered the effects of tear gas inhalation, after dozens of soldiers invaded Beit Ummar town, north of the city.

Mohammad Awad, spokesperson of the Popular Committee against the Wall and Settlements in Hebron, stated the clashes took place south of Beit Ummar, close to the illegal Karmie Tzur settlement, built on lands belonging to residents of Beit Ummar.

Awad added that the soldiers fired rounds of live ammunition, rubber-coated metal bullets, gas bombs and concussion grenades, at dozens of local youth and homes in the town, after invading it.

Three were shot with rubber-coated metal bullets, and several residents received treatment for the effects of tear gas inhalation.

In related news, an Israeli settler opened fire at a Palestinian car, south of Hebron city, eyewitnesses said.

The settler used his government-issued automatic rifle to target a car carrying residents of al-Hamamda and Abu Taha families close to an Israeli military base, south of Hebron.

Fleeing Israeli fire, the residents sped away through an unpaved road leading to Beit Ummar town, southwest of Yatta town. The attack caused damage but no injuries.
