Dozens of patients suffocate as Israeli forces attack hospital in Hebron

HEBRON, Sunday, August 30, 2020 (WAFA) – Over 25 patients undergoing hospitalization and medical staff in the Hebron Governmental Hospital, south of the West Bank, suffered suffocation today when Israeli occupation forces fired teargas at Palestinian civilians near the hospital, according to local sources.

Israeli soldiers were reportedly raiding a carpentry workshop near the hospital when they fired teargas canisters at Palestinian civilians in the surrounding, causing at least 25 patients, including those receiving treatment for coronavirus, and medical staff to suffocate.

They were all evacuated by the Palestinian Red Crescent to a safe haven.

Earlier last night, Israeli occupation forces raided al-Arroub refugee camp, north of the city, and shared a statement threatening the local residents of collective punishment and mass arrests.
