Palestinians suffocate as Israeli army attacks homes north of Hebron with tear gas

HEBRON, � Israeli forces Saturday fired tear gas canisters toward Palestinian homes in the town of Beit Ummar to the north of Hebron, leading to several suffocation cases among the residents, according to a local activist.

Media activist in Beit Ummar, Mohammad Awad, told WAFA Israeli soldiers fired warning shots into the air and tear gas canisters toward Palestinians’ homes, causing many to suffocate. They were all treated at the scene.

Moreover, forces fired tear gas canisters toward a car while passengers were still inside, causing all four passengers, including two females, to suffocate. Forces reportedly took the keys of the car and forced the passengers to stay inside before targeting it with tear gas.

The passengers were able to exit the car through the windows and were treated at the scene.
