Palestinians suffocate in Bethlehem-area clashes


BETHLEHEM, Wednesday, March 30, 2022 (WAFA) – Several Palestinians suffocated after inhaling tear gas fired by the Israeli military during clashes that broke out in the town of al-Khader, south of Bethlehem, according to WAFA correspondent.

Israeli soldiers fired rubber-coated steel bullets, stun grenades, and tear gas canisters at residents, causing several people to suffocate.

An increasing number of unarmed and peaceful Palestinians were either killed or seriously injured as a result of Israel’s constant use of tear gas against Palestinians.

B'Tselem, the Israeli human rights information center, stated that “[Israeli] soldiers and Border Police often fire tear-gas grenades directly at demonstrators with the aim of hitting them, or fire carelessly, without ensuring that demonstrators are not in the direct line of fire, in direct contravention of regulations.”
