Israeli occupation soldiers chased and attacked dozens of Palestinian workers early today morning, as the latter tried to access their workplaces inside Israel through a crossing point near the village of Ni’lin, to the west of Ramallah in the occupied West Bank.
Mayor of Ni’lin, Emad Khawaja, said Israeli soldiers fired live shots and teargas at the workers, causing many cases suffocation from teargas inhalation among them.
No serious injuries were reported among the workers.
Last week, the Israeli occupation army announced at least a week-long shutdown of the border crossings with the occupied West Bank and the Gaza Strip under the pretext of Rosh Hashanah holidays.
