House set on fire from Israeli teargas canister near Qalqilia

 

QALQILIA, Saturday, October 05, 2019 (WAFA) – A house was partially set ablaze today after it was hit by a teargas canister by Israeli occupation forces, who raided the town of Azzun to the east of the West Bank city of Qalqilia, local and medical sources said.

Civil defense crews were able to put the fire off after it had almost burnt half of the house, which reportedly belongs to a local Palestinian citizen who was identified as Mohammad Matar, 50 years old.

Over 20 Palestinians also suffocated from teargas inhalation during the Israeli army’s raid of the town. They were all treated at the scene.
