HEBRON, Thursday, September 22, 2022 (WAFA) – Three Palestinians were injured by Israeli gunfire this evening, including a disabled person, during confrontations with Israeli occupation forces in the town of Beit Ummar, to the north of Hebron, according to local sources.

Mohammad Awad, a local Palestinian activist, told WAFA that an Israeli army force stormed the neighborhood of Al-Dahr in the town, sparking clashes with residents.
