QALQILIYA (Ma’an) — An Israeli tear gas canister set fire to a Palestinian home on Friday in the West Bank village of Kufr Qaddum, during a demonstration against settlers in the occupied West Bank.
Witnesses said the home belonged to Mousa Obeid, a resident of the village. Several family members suffered from inhaling the gas but their conditions were not immediately clear.
Soldiers were stationed at the entrance of the town holding up a firetruck and detained one person, onlookers said.
Near Bethlehem, Israeli forces suppressed a weekly demonstration against the wall in the al-Masaara village by preventing their access to the barrier.
The coordinator of the local committee against the wall, Hassan Briggah, stressed that all activists were paying condolences to a Fatah leader, Hani al-Hassan, who died this week.
He added that Palestinians hope to learn the true cause of late President Yasser Arafat’s demise, following the broadcast of an investigation by Al Jazeera suggesting he was poisoned.
