HEBRON (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces demolished several structures, including a home, in a Hebron village on Monday, locals said.

Israeli bulldozers arrived in Beit Awwa village and destroyed a residential property, shed and water well in the area, witnesses told Ma'an.

Dozens of residents protested the demolitions, with Israeli soldiers firing tear gas at the crowds, lightly injuring several people.

A Palestinian cameraman, Amir Abdeen, sustained bruises after being hit in the foot by a tear gas canister.

Eight members of Rasim Mustafa Sweiti's family were made homeless by the demolition, a Red Crescent official said.
