IMEMC & Agencies: Monday evening, Palestinian medical sources have reported that several Palestinians received treatment for the effects of tear gas inhalation after Israeli soldiers invaded Beit Ummar town, north of the southern West Bank city of Hebron.

The sources said several military jeeps invaded Aseeda area, in the town, where they fired concussion grenades and gas bombs at a number of homes, causing dozens of Palestinians to suffer the effects of tear gas inhalation.
Mohammad Awad, spokesperson of the Popular Committee against the Wall and Settlements in Beit Ummar, told the WAFA News Agency that the soldiers also attempted to ram a young Palestinian man with their vehicle, but that he managed to escape unharmed.
On Monday evening, thousands of Palestinians held protests and marched in various neighborhood in Hebron city, and several nearby towns, in solidarity with hunger striking Palestinian detainees held by Israel.
The Palestinians chanted slogans calling for ending the illegitimate Israeli occupation of Palestine, and the release of all political prisoners.
