HEBRON (Ma’an) — Clashes near Hebron in the occupied West Bank injured eight Palestinians on Saturday, medics said.

Israeli forces fired tear gas amid the confrontations with settlers in the Old City of Hebron, medical officials said.

Eight Palestinians including four children were taken by ambulance to the local government hospital for treatment, said Nasser Qabajaeh, the head of the Red Crescent’s operations room in Hebron.

Onlookers said settlers threw stones and the army fired tear-gas canisters and stun grenades.

An Israeli military spokeswoman did not immediately return a call seeking comment.
