Coordinator of the Popular Committee against the Wall and Settlements in Hebron, Rateb Jabour, said that the soldiers attacked members of the Awad family as they were heading to their farmlands, in Khirbit Um Al-‘Arayes area, and denied them passage.

The army claimed that the area had been declared a “closed military zone”, and forced the villagers away.

Jabour denounced the escalating Israeli intrusions, and stated that Israel is violating every aspect of life, affecting the social, economic, agricultural, educational and health sectors, in an effort to drive the Palestinians out of their homes and lands.

In related news, several armored Israeli military jeeps entered Hebron city, during the early morning hours, and invaded various neighborhoods in the city.

On Friday evening, at least 25 Palestinians were shot with rubber-coated metal bullets, while dozens have been treated for the effects of tear gas inhalation, suffered during clashes with invading Israeli soldiers.
