Dozens suffocate during clashes near Hebron

HEBRON, Monday, January 03, 2022 (WAFA) – Dozens of Palestinians suffocated after inhaling tear gas fired at them by the Israeli army during clashes that broke out in the al-Fawwar refugee camp to the south of Hebron, according to WAFA correspondent.

Israeli forces attacked Palestinians following a peaceful rally that was held in support of Palestinian prisoner in Israeli jails, Mohammed Hawash, whose life is in danger after 140 days of hunger strike to protest his administrative detention.

Dozens were reportedly treated at the scene from tear-gas suffocation.

Forces closed the metal gate erected at the entrance to the camp and prevented Palestinians from leaving or entering.
