Palestinian farmers on Tuesday, suffered inhalation injuries during an attack by illegal Israeli settlers in Ash-Shuyukh town, near the occupied West Bank city of Hebron, according to local sources.

Ahmad al-Halayqa, media activist, told Palestinian WAFA News Agency that colonial settlers, under Israeli military protection, attacked Palestinian farmers in She’ib At-Tina and al-Majalis areas in the southern West Bank, in an attempt to force them out of their lands.

Al-Halayaa added that Israeli soldiers fired tear-gas and concussion grenades towards the Palestinian farmers causing some to suffer the toxic effects of tear-gas inhalation.

Important to note that illegal Israeli settlers, on Monday, invaded the town of Qusra, south of Nablus, while Israeli soldiers provided cover for the invading colonists by firing many live rounds and tear-gas canisters at the Palestinians.
