Abdul-Rahman Barghouthi

July 07, 2017: Abdul-Rahman Mahmoud Barghouthi, 18 months, died from the severe effects of teargas inhalation after Israeli soldiers invaded Aboud village, northwest of Ramallah in central West Bank, and fired many gas bombs.

The toddler was injured in May, before he was moved to a Palestinian hospital in Ramallah, and was later transferred to Hadassah Israeli Medical Center in Jerusalem, where he died from his serious wounds.

Local sources in Aboud said the soldiers invaded the village and attacked Palestinian protesters, before firing dozens of gas bombs at them and many homes, causing several Palestinians to suffer the effects of teargas inhalation.

Volunteers with the Palestinian Civil Defense said they rushed to the toddler’s home when he was injured, but could not drive to the property after the soldiers stopped their ambulance, an issue that forced them to run to the home, and carry the child all the way back to the ambulance. Abdul-Rahman was from Aboud. Source: IMEMC
