QNN (Occupied Hebron) – Palestinian students suffered from toxic gas inhalation thrown towards them by Israeli soldiers while they were on their way to school Sunday morning in southern occupied Hebron, local sources stated.
The sources added that the Israeli occupation forces provoke and assault the Palestinian students on purpose to ignite clashes between the students and the IOF, which usually result in throwing sound and toxic gas bombs by Israeli soldiers, and using rubber bullets against the students.
In the northern part of the city, especially in “Beit al-Baraka” town, Israeli bulldozers swept an area of more than 200 donums planted with citrus and olive trees.
Palestinian activist Yusuf Abu Maria said that the sweeping is part of a plan to expand a settlement road linking the illegal settlement of Gush Etzion and occupied Jerusalem to Beersheba with a width of 60 meters.
Abu Maria said that he was detained by the Israeli forces when they saw him documenting their demolitions, and threatened him to send him to a detention center if he continues to document and publish their violations.
“Beit al-Baraka” used to be a medical center, owned for Presbyterian Church, where Palestinians received medical care until 2016 when it was illegally sold to a Zionist organization, planning to annex it to Gush Etzion illegal settlement.
