Eyewitnesses said that confrontations took place near Beit Hagai settlement, established on Palestinian land south of Al-Khalil.

They said that dozens of citizens from Fawar refugee camp and Doura and Hijra areas gathered near the closed road that has been closed since the Aqsa intifada in 2000 and asked for opening it before Palestinian citizens.

The witnesses said that the soldiers fired metal bullets and tear gas at the demonstrators triggering large-scale confrontations.

They said that soldiers had been deployed in the area since the early morning hours and blocked the citizens from completing their march to the closed road.

Other clashes were reported in separate areas in Al-Khalil province where young men engaged IOF soldiers after storming their village of Halhoul, north of Al-Khalil, through its main entrance.

Locals said that the young men threw stones and empty bottles at the soldiers who were firing teargas canisters at them, adding that many citizens were treated for gas inhalation.

Similar clashes were reported in Beit Ummar village, also north of Al-Khalil, and in Aroub refugee camp.
