Gas canister lands at mosque amid clashes near Hebron

HEBRON (Ma’an) -- Israeli forces fired tear gas Wednesday afternoon near a mosque in Dura, near Hebron, locals said, after a clash erupted with stone-throwers earlier in the day.

Part of the gas canister burned carpets inside, preventing prayer.

Soldiers had taken over a still under contruction home in the same area hours earlier, and forbade workers from continuing their work. The soldiers then clashed with stone-throwers who gathered in the area.
