HEBRON (Ma’an) -- Israeli forces detained a former Palestinian prisoner and fired tear gas at locals during a raid early Friday morning into the Beit Ummar town, north of Hebron in the southern occupied West Bank.

Locals told Ma’an that Israeli forces raided the town early Friday morning and searched several homes in the town, including the homes of Khalid Hussein Ikhlayyil, Moussa Issa Zaaqiq, Muhammad Said Awad, Muhammad Abdullah Abed al-Fattah Awad and Said Saleh al-Zaaqiq.

Soldiers allegedly ransacked homes and broke the glass of doors and windows during the raid.

Local activist Muhammad Ayyad Awad said that Israeli forces detained former prisoner Mutasem Ibrahim Ikhlayyil, 25, from his home.

During the raid, clashes erupted between local youth who threw stones and Israeli forces who fired tear gas into the town, causing several people to suffer from severe tear gas inhalation.
