Palestinian Baby Dies After Inhaling Tear Gas Shot by Israeli Forces into His Home

In the Israeli-occupied West Bank, the Palestinian Ministry of Health says an 18-month-old baby has died after inhaling tear gas shot by Israeli forces into his bedroom two months ago. The baby, Abdul Rahman Barghouti, was exposed to the gas on May 19, when Israeli soldiers attacked Palestinians demonstrating in the town of Aboud near Ramallah in support of the Palestinian prisoners’ hunger strike and fired tear gas into residents’ homes. The Palestinian Ministry of Health says Israeli jeeps then blocked an ambulance from reaching the baby, so he was instead rushed to the hospital by members of the Palestinian Red Cross by foot. Eighteen-month-old Abdul Rahman Barghouti died on Friday of asphyxiation.
