HEBRON (Ma’an) -- Israeli forces raided Beit Ummar on Saturday evening and detained four residents during a ceremony to honor Palestinian prisoners, Ma'an's correspondent and the Israeli army said.

Israeli soldiers fired tear gas and live ammunition during the raid on the town north of Hebron, witnesses said.

An Israeli military spokeswoman said four residents were arrested following a "violent riot" in which Palestinians threw stones at soldiers.

She said forces used "riot dispersal means" but was not aware that live ammunition was used.

The Palestinian Authority Minister of Detainee Affairs Issa Qaraqe and Hebron governor Kamel Hmaid attended the ceremony but left before the army raid, a Ma'an correspondent said.
