HEBRON, Sunday, April 03, 2022 (WAFA) – A Palestinian worker sustained burns today and others were injured while being chases by Israeli occupation soldiers near the town of ad-Dhahiriya, to the south of Hebron in the south of the occupied West Bank, according to local sources.
WAFA correspondent said Israeli soldiers manning the Israeli military checkpoint of ad-Dhahiriya chased Palestinian workers on their way to their workplaces inside Israel and fired stun grenades and teargas at them, causing burns to one of them and cases of suffocation from teargas inhalation. The injured worker was rushed to hospital.
Israeli soldiers also chased Palestinian workers near the Israeli segregation barrier to the west of Hebron, while the workers were on their way to their workplaces inside Israel. The workers usually use holes dug through the Israeli segregation barrier in their way to the workplace to avoid overcrowding at major Israeli checkpoints.
Meantime, Israeli soldiers denied access of Palestinian farmers into their own land in the town of Beit Ummar, to the north of Hebron, a local source told WAFA.
Yousef Abu Maria, a local anti-colonization activist, said Israeli soldiers and settlers gathered outside the illegal Israeli settlement of Karmei Zur, which is adjacent to the town, and denied access of Palestinian farmers into their land and asked them to leave the area.
