Dozens of Palestinians suffocated on Monday, November 11, 2019, as Israeli Occupation Forces (IOF) attacked Palestinians participating in marches commemorating the 15th anniversary for the death of Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat.

Media activist in Beit Ummar Mohammad Awad said that Israeli forces stormed an area adjacent to the Israeli settlement of Karmi Tzur, built illegally on Palestinian land to the south of Hebron, and attacked participants who were commemorating Arafat’s death anniversary

Forces fired rubber-coated steel bullets and tear gas canisters at locals and their homes, causing dozens to suffocate due to tear gas inhalation.
