A Palestinian infant, only five months of age, along with dozens of residents, including schoolchildren, suffered the severe effects of teargas inhalation, Sunday, after Israeli soldiers invaded Deir Nitham village, west of the central West Bank city of Ramallah.

Media sources said the soldiers attacked dozens of residents, especially schoolchildren, by firing a barrage of gas bombs at the residents, particularly schoolchildren in their schools.

They added that dozens of Palestinians, especially school children, suffered the severe effects of teargas inhalation, and received the needed treatment.

Furthermore, an infant, only five months of age, suffered the severe effects of teargas inhalation while in her family’s home, especially when the soldiers fired the gas bombs at random, many striking homes and facilities.

The schools had to shut down and sent the students back to their homes in fear of additional Israeli military escalation.

It is worth mentioning that Deir Nitham has recently been subject to constant invasions and violations, especially after the soldiers closed it two northern entrances with sand hills, in addition to the permanent military roadblock on its eastern entrance.
