HEBRON (Ma’an) – Israeli forces dispersed on Tuesday a non-violent rally against settlement construction and closure of shops in the center of the southern West Bank city of Hebron.

Israeli soldiers fired stun grenades and tear-gas canisters at the protestors, hurting many of them as they inhaled tear gas.

Troops also closed the area of Ash-Shallalah street and the old Hebron building municipality. The area was announced a closed military zone, and Palestinian presence was considered a violation of military orders.

The rally was initiated by a local group of Hebron youth called the Coalition Against Settlements.

Protestors marched from Bab Az-Zawiya neighborhood toward Ash-Shuhada street. International solidarity activists joined the rally raising slogans demanding evacuation of Israeli settlers from the heart of the southern West Bank city, and re-opening its streets.

Separately, troops ransacked a printer in As-Salam street in Hebron, confiscating property. No arrests were reported. (Read more)
