Occupation forces attack Palestinian workers near Tulkarm

TULKARM, Sunday, June 19, 2022 (WAFA) – Israeli occupation forces today attacked scores of Palestinian workers near the Israeli segregation barrier south of the city of Tulkarm in the north of the West Bank, as the former were heading to their workplaces inside Israel, according to witnesses.

Soldiers reportedly chased the workers and attacked them with teargas near the Tayibe military checkpoint, causing many cases of suffocation from gas inhalation among the workers.

Palestinian workers in the occupied West Bank usually opt for alternative routes to avoid overcrowding at major Israeli checkpoints in their daily journey to their workplaces, and are often attacked by Israeli soldiers whenever they try to cross the Israeli segregation barrier.
