QALQILIYA (Ma'an) -- A 1-month-old child from the northern West Bank village of Kafr Qaddum was seriously hurt after Israeli forces fired tear gas at his family's home on Saturday night.

A spokesperson for the village's popular resistance committee Murad Ishteiwi told Ma'an that four Israeli military jeeps and a bulldozer stormed the village east of Qalqiliya overnight.

The Israeli forces fired tear gas haphazardly at houses during the raid, he said.

As a result of the excessive use of tear gas, a month-old child named Khalid Majid Jumaa began to choke and vomit from the tear gas.

Jumaa received first aid immediately in his village but had to be evacuated to Darwish Nazzal hospital in Qalqiliya after the severity of his injuries were realized.

An Israeli spokeswoman said that "confrontations" had broken out in the area between residents and soldiers after locals "hurled rocks" at them.

The internationally recognized Palestinian territories of which the West Bank and East Jerusalem form a part have been occupied by the Israeli military since 1967.

An Israeli spokeswoman never immediately returns calls seeking a comment unless its to give a comment about how they had to disperse an "illegal riot."

Thousands of Palestinian children have been murdered by Israelis. Still western regimes in both Europe & US consider Israel as "Oasis of Democracy" in Arab Orient. Thanks for Palestinians and all Arabs for not having any democratic state!!!

#4 to which particular Ma'an reader do you say "you threw a rock at and hurt" a 2 year old in the head? Or are you saying, in your ignorance, that all Palestinians or their supporters are responsible for something a person under occupation does? It really is an ignorant comment of yours. On the other hand I can say that your support of the occupation and the murderous things the IDf and the settlers do to the Palestinians makes you responsible.BTW have you read the "speaking out" soldiers say?
