Palestinians suffocate with tear-gas during Sabasitya clashes

NABLUS (Ma'an) -- Several Palestinians suffocated with tear-gas during clashes with Israeli forces, on Thursday, in the Sabastiya village in the northern occupied West Bank district of Nablus.

Mayor of Sabastiya, Muhammad Azem, said that clashes erupted between local youths and Israeli forces as they raided a historical site in the village.

Israeli soldiers fired tear-gas bombs causing several locals to suffer tear-gas suffocation.

Last Thursday, dozens of birds suffocated to death due to an excessive amount of tear-gas bombs fired by Israeli forces throughout Sabastiya.

Sabastiya is located some 12 kilometers outside the city of Nablus, is the site of ancient ruins dating back 3,000 years, and was listed in the Oslo Accords among the archaeological sites of importance to Israel and designated a "national park."
