JENIN, Saturday, August 01, 2020 (WAFA) – Dozens of Palestinian civilians, including four children, sustained suffocation last night during a raid by Israeli occupation forces on the village of Zububa, northwest of Jenin in the occupied West Bank, local sources told WAFA.

Occupation forces raided the village in the late night hours, provoking clashes with local Palestinian residents. The later fired rubber-coated rounds, stun grenades and teargas canisters to disperse the protesters, causing many cases of suffocation from gas inhalation.

Those who suffered suffocation were moved to a nearby hospital for treatment.
