The Terror Continues for Children in GazaSalem-News.com
Israeli forces fired dozens of tear gas and stun grenades at school kids on Tuesday.
(GAZA, Palestine) - Today on the route to school at the Salaymeh checkpoint, Hebron, Israeli Forces fired 29 rounds of tear gas and 5 stun grenades at kids walking to school.
The morning started off peacefully. Children passed through the checkpoint without problem. Then, the word on the street got around that two Palestinians had been murdered by the Israeli army.
Israeli Forces had a clear presence at the checkpoint from the start. A few small stones were thrown by a handful of young boys, but they landed nowhere near the checkpoint.
Suddenly, three Israeli Border police swapped their soft hats for helmets and proceeded to fire the first round of tear gas at the children.
29 tear gas canisters were fired and 5 stun grenades in total. This was extremely excessive and unnecessary as the Israeli border police were clearly in no danger.
The amount of tear gas fired at the children required immediate medical attention, and two ambulances arrived at the school.
A Palestinian teacher said that 30 school children and 15 teachers suffered from excessive tear gas inhalation. It is also worth noting that a nearby retail shop also had to shut due to tear gas entering the premises.
