NABLUS, Thursday, October 20, 2022 (WAFA) – Several Palestinians suffocated today as Israeli forces attacked a rally calling for the lifting of the punitive tight military siege imposed by Israel on the city for the 10th consecutive day.

WAFA correspondent said Israeli forces violently suppressed participants in the rally that took place at the entrance to Deir Sharaf town to the northwest of Nablus, targeting them with stun grenades and tear gas canisters, causing a number of people to suffocate.

Some youth were reportedly trying to remove the earth mounds blocking the town’s entrances but were directly targeted by Israeli forces' tear gas and stun grenades.

No injuries or arrests were reported.
