Israeli occupation forces stormed Tuesday, September 19, Anata town, northeast of occupied Jerusalem, wounding dozens of Palestinian students.
Local Palestinian sources reported that Israeli troops stormed Anata town, stationed near Palestinian schools, and fired sound bombs and toxic tear gas canisters at the students, suffocating dozens of them.
The students were forced to leave their classes due to the heavy firing of tear gas bombs at the schools which suffocated a large number of them.
Separately, Israeli armed units detained Palestinian citizen Mohammad Sewiri after raiding his house in the Old City of Jerusalem and brutally searched it.
The occupied West Bank, including Jerusalem, have been witnessing a marked escalation of Israeli crimes and settler-instigated violence against Palestinian citizens and properties, flashing heightened tensions across occupied Palestine.
Statistics released by the Palestinian Information Center, commonly known as “Ma’ta,” reveal that last August, Israeli occupation forces and settlers, were responsible for a staggering 3,180 violations against Palestinian citizens in different cities across the West Bank, including Jerusalem.
