Occupied Jerusalem (QNN)- Israeli settler attacked two Palestinian children today by spraying them with pepper gas in occupied Jerusalem, local sources reported.
The settler reportedly assaulted and pepper-sprayed the two children sitting inside their father’s vehicle.
The settler, however, fled the scene after assaulting them.
The two children were moved to hospital to get the medical treatment.
There are nearly 700,000 Israeli settlers living in 256 illegal settlements and outposts scattered across the occupied West Bank, including East Jerusalem. Israeli settlements are illegal under international law.
Yesterday, a 15-year-old boy was shot dead while dozens have been wounded with ammunition and poisonous tear gas during the Israeli repression of protests in the West Bank and Jerusalem.
Local sources said Israeli forces used live and rubber-coated metal bullets, in addition, to tear gas bombs against the locals, who were protesting against a new settlement outpost in their village.
In occupied Jerusalem, local sources said Israeli forces used pepper gas against a woman and arrested two young men.
