The Israeli occupation forces (IOF) last night launched a teargas attack on Palestinian citizens from Nazlat Issa town, north of Tulkarem, causing many of them to suffer from their exposure to the resultant fumes.
Local sources told a reporter for the Palestinian Information Center (PIC) that Israeli soldiers suddenly showered a large number of Nazlat Issa residents with tear gas after they gathered near a military gate at the separation fence in their area in Tulkarem in an attempt to go to Palestinian towns on the other side of the fence.
They also said that ambulance crews provided on-site medical assistance to many citizens after they suffered from inhaling tear gas, adding that the IOF arrested about 10 young men and took them to an unknown place.
In recent days, the IOF kidnaped dozens of Palestinians near the separation fence in Tulkarem.
