QALQILIYA (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces injured an elderly Palestinian woman with tear gas during an overnight raid in the village of Kafr Qaddum in the occupied West Bank district of Qalqiliya, witnesses told Ma’an on Tuesday.

Israeli soldiers broke into the home of Shafiqa Ahmad Abd al-Qadir Jumaa late on Monday night and fired tear gas inside her house, causing her to suffer from tear gas inhalation.

The eyewitness sources added that Jumaa also sustained minor bruises during the raid.

Locals said that Israeli soldiers broke into five other houses in Kafr Qaddum, and beat another village resident, identified as Majid Abd al-Mumin Jumaa.

An Israeli army spokesperson told Ma’an that they were looking into the reports.

Israeli forces carry out raids in Palestinian communities on a near-nightly basis, with the UN documenting 178 such operations across the occupied West Bank from Dec. 13 to Dec. 26.
