NABLUS (Ma'an) -- Dozens of birds suffocated to death due to an excessive amount of tear-gas bombs fired by Israeli forces throughout the Sabastiya village, northwest of the northern occupied West bank district of Nablus, on Thursday.

Mayor of Sabastiya Muhammad Azem told Ma'an that Israeli forces raided the eastern part of the village and attempted to take down a Palestinian flag, which was raised by the residents on Land Day last week.

Azem mentioned that following the raid, clashes broke out among Israeli forces and Palestinian youths.

During the clashes, Israeli forces repeatedly fired a large amount of tear-gas bombs and sound grenades towards the youths and several houses in the area.

Azem confirmed that a number of Palestinian youths suffered from tear-gas inhalation.

In addition, dozens of various birds, which were kept in one of the houses for breeding, suffocated to death from tear-gas bombs fired by Israeli forces.
