.Hebron, MINA – A disabled Palestinian man was arrested by the Israeli occupation forces this evening during confrontations between Israeli occupation forces and Palestinians in Bab Al Zawiya neighborhood in the occupied West Bank city of Hebron, according to local sources.
Witnesses told WAFA that Fadi Abu Sneneh, a disabled Palestinian man, was arrested by the Israeli occupation army, while many others suffocated from teargas inhalation during confrontations in the neighborhood.
Confrontations with Israeli occupation forces were also reported in al-Arroub refugee camp, north of the city.
Meanwhile, a Palestinian child and an international activist were injured by Israeli occupation forces during the weekly protest in the village of Kafr Qaddum, in the West Bank province of Qalqilia, against Israeli settlement construction and expansion, local sources said.
Morad Shtewi, a local anti-occupation activist, told WAFA that Israeli occupation soldiers attacked the protesters with rubber-coated rounds and tear gas canisters, lightly injuring a 14-year-old child and an international solidarity activist by rubber-coated rounds in the chest and causing many cases of suffocation from gas inhalation.
The two were treated at the scene of the clashes.
For many years, villagers from Kafr Qaddum and neighboring villages have been holding weekly protests every Friday against illegal Israeli settlement construction.
More than 650,000 Israeli settlers live in Jewish-only settlements across the occupied Palestinian Territories in violation of international law. (T/RE1)
