Awad told WAFA that Israeli soldiers raided the southern neighborhoods of Beit Ummar, located on the main road between Hebron (Al-Khalil) and Bethlehem, and fired teargas canisters and stun grenades at local residents who confronted them.
Several people suffocated from inhaling teargas said and were treated at the spot, according to Awad.
