JENIN, (PIC)– Israeli occupation forces (IOF) callously fired teargas bombs at a Palestinian family home in Zabuba village, west of Jenin city, at a late night hour on Wednesday causing breathing difficulty for 11 of its occupants.

Locals told the PIC reporter that a number of IOF jeeps burst into the village while soldiers fired live bullets and teargas canisters to terrorize civilians.

They added that one of those canisters fell inside the home of Jamal Sha’abna causing fainting and breathing difficulty among his family members who were rushed to hospital.

Zabuba, located on the Green Line dividing Palestinian land occupied in 1948 from the 1967 occupied West Bank, is almost daily raided by IOF troops.

Meanwhile, the Hebrew radio said that 11 Palestinians were rounded up in pre dawn raids on Thursday in different West Bank areas.

Local sources in Al-Khalil village of Sa’eer said on Thursday that IOF soldiers broke into Palestinian homes in the village using police dogs and apprehended seven Palestinians including five minors.

They were all taken to Etzion detention center, the sources said, noting that the IOF soldiers earlier this week stormed the same town and rounded up seven citizens of one family who were taken to Jalama detention center.
