HEBRON (Ma’an) -- Dozens of Palestinian school students in the southern occupied West Bank city of Hebron were exposed to high levels of tear gas on Thursday morning as Israeli forces showered their school with tear gas canisters.

Several students were transferred to the Muhammad Ali al-Muhtaseb Hospital for treatment.

The principal of the al-Hajiryeh school Ammar Bin Jaber told Ma’an “we were shocked by the amount of tear-gas bombs fired by Israeli soldiers at the school and nearby school.”

He added that many students and teachers suffered from severe tear-gas inhalation.
