HEBRON (Ma'an) -- At least seven schoolchildren inhaled tear gas during clashes with Israeli troops Thursday morning in Arab al-Ramadin village south of Hebron in the southern West Bank, the local council reported. 

Ahmad Suleiman, who heads the village's local council, said large numbers of Israeli troops stormed the area and destroyed the main electricity network. As a result, angry schoolchildren clashed with the soldiers who showered them with tear gas hurting at least seven. 

Two children have been detained, according to Suleiman.

This was the second time Israeli forces destroyed the village's electricity network, added Suleiman, who noted that the local council filed legal procedures at an Israeli court.
