Dozens of Palestinian schoolchildren in al-Khalil city choked on teargas on Tuesday morning after they were violently attacked by the Israeli occupation forces (IOF).

A PIC news reporter said the Israeli occupation troops attacked Palestinian schoolchildren and protesters near the Tareq Ibn Ziad School with live rounds, rubber bullets, and teargas canisters, sparking violent clashes in the area.

A Palestinian civilian sustained bullet wounds and was rushed to the al-Khalil public hospital for urgent treatment. Dozens of Palestinian schoolchildren sustained critical breathing disorders due to heavy teargas inhalation.

The Israeli occupation troops further rolled into residential neighbourhoods in al-Khalil and sealed off the main entrances to local towns and villages with makeshift roadblocks, where Palestinian vehicles and passengers were stopped and searched. The IOF further stormed al-Khalil’s northern town of Beit Ummar in several army jeeps and wreaked havoc on Palestinian shops.
