JENIN, Sunday, May 08, 2022 (WAFA) – A number of Palestinians suffocated today by tear gas fired by Israeli forces during clashes that broke out in the village of Rummanah to the west of Jenin, in the northern occupied West Bank, according to local sources.
Sources told WAFA that at least 50 military vehicles stormed the village, raided several homes, and turned their rooftops into military outposts, spurring clashes with residents.
Forces fired rubber-coated steel bullets, tear gas canisters, and stun grenades at residents and their homes, causing many to suffocate due to tear gas inhalation.
A Palestinian youth was also struck with a stun grenade in the leg during the clashes.
Forces also raided the home of local resident Reyad Bishnaq and took over the rooftop of his home after physically attacking him and holding the family members in one room after confiscating their cell phones. Forces reportedly prevented Palestinian ambulances from entering the area to transfer the injured.
