Dozens injured by tear gas at Beit Ummar rally

HEBRON (Ma'an) -- Dozens of Palestinians were injured overnight Sunday after a rally in Beit Ummar was dispersed by Israeli forces, local activists said.

Muhammad Ayyad Awad, a local popular committee activist, said that protesters had gathered in the center of Beit Ummar to demonstrate against the killing of Muhammad Abu Khdeir.

Israeli soldiers fired rubber-coated bullets and tear gas in the town, lightly injuring dozens of people.

Protesters responded by throwing stones, empty bottles and Molotov cocktails, with reports of one injured Israeli soldier.

A tear gas canister landed inside the house of 60-year-old Ahmad al-Allami and his wife was evacuated to hospital for treatment.

The rally was organized by Fatah and PFLP activists.
