HEBRON (Ma’an) — Israeli forces on Monday evening accosted a group of mourners in Beit Ummar village Monday, activists said.

Two workers for the rights group B’Tselem were beaten by Israeli troops, who opened fire and shot stun grenades at people attending the funeral, local activist Muhammad Awad said.

Awad told Ma’an that Imad Abu Hashem, 21, was taken to a clinic for treatment of injuries.
