Edrees Shaker Jabareen

May 15, 2018: Edrees Shaker Jabareen, 58, died from the severe effects of teargas inhalation, after Israeli soldiers invaded the ad-Dowwara area, in Sa’ir town, south of the southern West Bank city of Hebron, and resorted to the excessive use of force against nonviolent Palestinian protesters.

Jabareen, a member of the Local Council in Sa’ir town, was rushed to the Emergency Unit at the al-Ahli Hospital, but died from the severe effects of the toxic gas bombs fired by the soldiers.

The Palestinian suffocated near his home in the ad-Dowwara area, after the soldiers fired dozens of gas bombs at the protesters, and was rushed to the al-Ahli Hospital, in Hebron, where he died at the Urgent Care Unit.

Medics said the man was standing near his home talking to some other Palestinians, but the intensity of the Israeli gas bombs covered the entire area before he collapsed, and was rushed to the hospital.

Edrees did not suffer from any health issues, or preexisting conditions, especially since he underwent routine medical checkups just a few days prior to his death, and received a clean bill of health.

On the same day, an armed Israeli colonialist settler tried to ram a young man, identified as Bilal Za’tari, 28, with his car near Khirbat Qalqas area, south of Hebron city, and when the man managed to run away, the settler shot him with a live round in his arm, and fled the scene.

The wounded young man suffered a moderate injury, and was rushed to the Al-Ahli Hospital.

Furthermore, the soldiers attacked protesters in the al-‘Arroub refugee camp, north of Hebron, with live fire, gas bombs and concussion grenades, in addition to directly targeting a home with gas bombs, causing many Palestinians to suffer the effects of teargas inhalation.
