A 54-year-old Palestinian died on Wednesday from excessive tear gas inhalation during clashes between Palestinian youths and Israeli forces in Hebron, medical sources said.

A doctor in Hebron’s government hospital told Ma’an that the Palestinian, identified as Hashem al-Azzeh, had a previous history of cardiac disease.
Locals told Ma’an that he was a resident of the Tel Rumeida area of Hebron, and was at Bab al-Zawiya in central Hebron when he suffered excessive tear gas inhalation.

He was rushed to hospital, where doctors pronounced him dead.

Fierce clashes erupted across Hebron on Wednesday after two Palestinian teenagers were shot dead late on Tuesday after allegedly attempting a stabbing attack at a military checkpoint.

Several Palestinians were injured with rubber-coated steel bullets during the clashes at Bab al-Zawiya as well as on Tareq Bin Ziyad Street in Hebron, while several others suffered excessive tear gas inhalation.

Meanwhile, in the Dawwara area of Sair in northern Hebron, another Palestinian was reportedly shot and wounded with a live round in the chest during clashes there.
