Violent clashes broke out between Palestinian young men and Jewish settlers from the illegal settlement of Kiryat Arba near al-Khalil city on Monday night. Local sources told the Palestinian Information Center (PIC) that local young men from al-Khalil hurled stones and Molotov cocktails at a horde of Jewish settlers in Jabal Johar area on the southern outskirts of the city.
The young men also managed to close the road leading to the settlement. Armed settlers and border soldiers, in turn, opened fire at the young men. Luckily no one was hurt during the shooting. Soon later, military reinforcements arrived in the area and embarked on firing tear gas at the young men. Several young men received on-site medical aid after they suffered from inhaling tear gas.
