HEBRON (Ma’an) -- An infant was hospitalized Monday after inhaling tear gas fired by Israeli police during a raid near Hebron, activists said.
Mahmud Muhammad Abdul Fattah At-Teet, 18 months, was transferred to a clinic in Beit Ummar and then to a hospital, Palestine Solidarity Project spokesman Muhammad Ayyad Awad said, after the raid on the village at 10:30 p.m.
Israel detained Mu’ayed Hasan Abdul Fattah At-Teet, 21, after searching his house, Awad said.
A Palestinian toddler was reported dead last Friday after Israeli forces fired tear gas amid clashes in a Palestinian neighborhood in East Jerusalem, relatives said.
Days later, an Israeli human rights organization called on police to investigate the incident.
