AL-KHALIL, (PIC)– Israeli occupation forces (IOF) fired teargas and stun grenades at a peaceful march in Beit Ummar village, north of Al-Khalil, afternoon Saturday, local sources said.

They said that dozens of citizens took part in the march along with French and other foreign peace activists during which they called for ending occupation and settlement activity, releasing prisoners, and lifting the siege on Beit Ummar.

Groups of armed settlers confronted the march, which was heading to an area threatened with confiscation, and insulted the participants, locals said, adding that the settlers voiced racist slurs before starting to throw stones.

The locals noted that the soldiers did not budge to stop the settlers, who deliberately targeted journalists, adding that a number of injuries were sustained as a result.
