AL-KHALIL, (PIC)– Israeli occupation forces (IOF) violently suppressed a rally in Beit Ummar village, to the north of Al-Khalil, on Saturday injuring four participants including a child and a foreign activist.

Yousef Abu Maria, the coordinator of the national campaign in the village, said in a press release that the IOF soldiers fired tear gas canisters at the demonstration that tried to reach the village’s confiscated land near Karmi Tzur settlement.

He said that a 14-year-old child was injured along with two citizens and a foreign activist, adding that the injuries were due to the soldiers’ use of batons and rifle butts in attacking the participants.

Abu Maria said that the soldiers arrested Ahmed Abu Hashem, the secretary of the popular committee in the village, while participating in the event that started with visits to relatives of martyrs and prisoners, noting that the rally was also organized in solidarity with Palestinian prisoners on hunger strike.
