The Ma’an News Agency has reported that several residents suffered the effects of teargas inhalation in the Aseeda area, in Beit Ummar, and that the soldiers fired rounds of live ammunition and rubber-coated metal bullets.
Mohammad Awad, spokesperson of the Popular Committee Against the Wall in Beit Ummar, said several residents suffered serious effects of gas inhalation.
Awad added that an explosion occurred near an Israeli military tower, at the northern entrance of Beit Ummar, and that the soldiers began firing rounds of live ammunition before more army jeeps arrived at the scene and chased residents in the region, leading to clashes with them.
Earlier on Friday, an Israeli military jeep caused damage to a Palestinian car near the town.
Awad said that while the jeep was driving from the Halhoul area, towards Beit Ummar, one of its wheels was detached and struck a car, causing excessive damage.
