HEBRON (Ma'an) -- Palestinian police rescued a man who tried to commit suicide in Hebron on Monday because he couldn't find work, police said.

Mahmoud Nimir al-Humouz, 29, from al-Fawwar refugee camp, went to the roof of a building belonging to the UN agency for Palestinian refugees in Hebron and tied a rope around his neck before trying to hang himself off the side of the building.

Palestinian police and civil defense officers spoke with him for an hour and a half before managing to pull him back from the building edge after he tried to jump.

Al-Humouz graduated with a bachelor's degree in Arabic language six years ago and has not been able to find work since.

The unemployment rate for Palestinians in the occupied West Bank is 21.2 percent for men as of 2013, according to the Palestinian Central Bureau of Statistics.

The Hebron district has the worst rate of unemployment for men at 26.1 percent.
