Palestinian students suffocated in Israeli raid near Nablus

A number of Palestinian citizens and students Thursday suffered from suffocation during an Israeli forces’ raid in the village of Burqa, northwest of the occupied West Bank city of Nablus.

Ghassan Daghlas, who monitors colonial settlement activities in the northern West Bank, said that confrontations broke out between Palestinians and Israeli forces in the vicinity of the village’s schools after fanatic Israeli settlers attempted sneaking to it.

He added that the soldiers fired bullets, sound and gas bombs, which resulted in some citizens and students suffocating due to inhaling the toxic gas fired at them.

Daghlas noted that in order to guarantee the safety of the students, schools had to be evaccuted.
