Several Palestinians suffocated today by tear gas fired by Israeli forces during clashes that broke out in the village of Qaryout to the south of Nablus, according to local sources.
Sources said that settlers stormed the village’s water spring, under the protection of Israeli forces, provoking residents and leading to clashes.
Israeli soldiers attacked the village residents with tear gas canisters and stun grenades after they attempted to confront the settlers, causing several suffocation cases among them.
The firing of tear gas canisters also caused nearby land to catch fire.
