A Palestinian infant and her grandparents suffered last night from suffocation after Israeli forces fired a tear gas bomb at their home in the East Jerusalem neighborhood of Issawiya, according to the Palestinian news agency WAFA.

Eyewitnesses told WAFA that Israeli forces raided the neighborhood and fired a gas bomb at the house, breaking its window and leading to the suffocation of the infant Ratil Odeh Derbas, her disabled grandfather, Mohammad Derbas, and her grandmother, Abeer Derbas.

The three were taken to the hospital for treatment.

Over the last few months, Israeli police forces have been raiding the east Jerusalem neighborhood of Issawiya on a daily basis, ransacking homes and arresting and assaulting Palestinians.

The Israeli campaign against Issawiya is aimed at oppressing and making life miserable for all who live there as part of efforts to push the native residents out of the holy city.

  1. Something is wrong with this story,,,, if they were suffocated it means they are deceased. So why were they taken to hospital for treatment?

  2. It is no use calling them names, I know that, but this has to be the work of degenerates. I cannot understand why our politicians are still, after all these decades, standing by and letting this kind of atrocity happen.
