Several Palestinians suffocated today during clashes with Israeli forces at the entrance to the town of Ja'aba, south of Jenin, the northern occupied West Bank, according to a local official.
Razi Ghannam, a Fatah official, told WAFA Israeli army soldiers set up a military checkpoint at the entrance to the town of Ja'aba, where they proceeded to stop and search Palestinian-registered cars, leading to clashes.
Forces stationed at the checkpoint fired tear gas canisters and stun grenades towards residents, causing several people to suffocate due to tear gas inhalation.
