Israeli soldiers invaded, on Saturday evening, the town of al-‘Ezariyya, east of occupied East Jerusalem, and fired many gas bombs, causing scores of Palestinians to suffer the effects of teargas inhalation, in addition to burning a clothing store.
Medical sources said dozens of Palestinians, including many children, suffered the effects of teargas inhalation, especially after the gas bombs struck many homes and stores.
Palestinian medics rushed to the town, and provided the needed aid to the wounded Palestinians.
In addition, a women’s clothing store was burnt after being struck by a number of gas bombs and concussion grenades.
Store owner Wisam Emtour said the clothes, and store contents were burnt, costing him a very serious financial loss.
He added that the soldiers deliberately targeted his store and many nearby shops, although they were filled with customers, an issue that led to dozens of injuries due to smoke and gas inhalation.
Many residents rushed to extinguish the fire, before Palestinian fighters arrived at the scene and controlled it.
Also on Saturday evening, Iraq-Burin village, south of the northern West Bank city of Nablus, searched homes and kidnapped five young men; many Palestinians suffered the effects of teargas inhalation.
