WEST BANK, PALESTINOW.COM — Dozens of Palestinian citizens on Tuesday choked on tear gas fired by Israeli occupation forces (IOF) during confrontations in Tulkarem and Ramallah in the West Bank.
In Tulkarem, scores of Palestinians marched in protest at the US deal of the century, raised Palestine flags and burned car tires, local sources reported.
The IOF attacked them with rubber-coated metal bullets and tear gas canisters. Dozens suffered breathing difficulties as a result of inhaling tear gas.
Meanwhile in Ramallah, dozens of Palestinian citizens organized a demonstration in al-Mughayyir village to defend their lands against illegal seizure by the IOF.
The IOF violently quelled the gathering, firing rubber-coated metal bullets, stun grenades and tear gas canisters at the villagers.
A number of them choked on tear gas and were treated in the field.
