Shooting of Palestinian workers continue at the apartheid barrier in the northern West Bank

 

TULKARM, Tuesday, December 17, 2019 (WAFA) – Israeli army shooting of Palestinians attempting to enter Israel for work in the north of the West Bank continued today with the shooting and injuring of a worker and suffocation of many others from teargas inhalation, according to witnesses.

They said Israeli forces manning a metal gate in the barrier north of the village of Qaffin, north of the occupied West Bank city of Tulkarm, opened fire at workers who gathered near the gate hoping to get a chance to enter Israel for work.

Witnesses told WAFA that the soldiers opened fire at the workers, injuring one and held him while preventing people from providing him with first aid.

Meanwhile, a number of workers suffered from suffocation due to inhaling the tear gas fired at them by Israeli soldiers as they gathered near the metal gate.

Israeli forces have recently and continuously been targeting Palestinian workers in that area and other nearby locations as they try to enter Israel for work.
