Occupied West Bank (QNN)- A 50-year-old Palestinian worker was announced dead of a heart attack early today morning while running from Israeli occupation forces in the occupied West Bank.
The worker, identified as Fo’ad Joudeh, died after Israeli occupation forces attacked a group of Palestinian workers by teargas near the village of Far’oun in the occupied West Bank.
Local sources said that he died after inhaling a large amount of tear gas, originating from gas grenades thrown by the Israeli occupation forces at the man and the other Palestinian workers.
Due to the lack of job opportunities in the West Bank, some Palestinians are forced to look for employment in Israeli-occupied Palestine in order to make a living.
However, entrance into the Israeli-occupied Palestine requires that Palestinians from the West Bank apply for entry permits, which are virtually impossible to obtain.
As a result, Palestinian workers from the West Bank regularly attempt to cross the apartheid Wall without a permit, putting them at risk of being arrested or attacked by Israeli occupation forces.
Since 2002, ‘Israel’ has been constructing a wall that stretches for more than 700 kilometres, annexing Palestinian land inside the occupied West Bank. This wall is known as
separation wall or apartheid wall.
