Israeli occupation forces has injured dozens of Palestinians including a child by tear gas during clashes with the Israeli forces in the West Bank town of Beit Ummar.

The Israeli occupation forces raided the areas of Baqa'a and Safa in the town of Beit Ummar, and dozens of soldiers broke into two houses in the two areas. In addition, clashes broke out with the Palestinians, during which Israeli soldiers fired rubber-coated metal bullets, a 16-year-old boy was wounded and dozens of people were suffocated with tear gas.

According to local sources, the occupation forces stormed the city of Hebron and the towns of Nuba and Kharas.

On the other hand, the occupation forces arrested Saturday a Palestinian child from the village of Al-Jadira, north-west of occupied Jerusalem.

The Palestinian news agency (WAFA) quoted eyewitnesses as saying that the Israeli soldiers transferred the 16-year-old boy to a detention center in the area.

On Friday, four Palestinians were killed and 618 others were injured in the Israeli occupation forces' repression of participants in the peaceful return marches in the Gaza Strip.

According to the Palestinian Ministry of Health, among those injured were 48 children and 20 women.

Since the end of March, thousands of Palestinians have participated in peaceful marches near the separation fence between the Gaza Strip and the Israeli entity to demand the return of the refugees to their towns and villages from which they were displaced in 1948. The attacks by the occupation forces led to the deaths of 130 Palestinians and more than 14 thousand others, a number of them in the case of clinical death. (QNA)
