Dozens of Israeli soldiers invaded, on Thursday evening [January 9 2013], the 'Ezbet al-Tabib village, east of the northern West Bank city of Qalqilia, firing gas bombs and causing dozens of residents to suffer the effects of tear gas inhalation.


Local sources said that resident Ali Tabib, his wheelchair bound wife, Rasheeqa, his daughter Rawda, and his granddaughter Tasneem, were all moved to the Darwish Nazzal Hospital in Qalqilia for treatment.

Furthermore, soldiers attacked a protest tent installed in front of the village Service Center after the army informed the village council that it intended to destroy the building.

The soldiers fired two gas bombs at the nonviolent protesters, causing dozens of residents to suffer the effects of tear gas inhalation.

Eyewitnesses stated that soldiers also fired gas bombs and concussion grenades at a number of homes in the village, and added that the soldiers stopped and harassed several villagers.
