IMEMC & Agencies:
Palestinian medical sources reported on Friday at night that 10 women and 15 children were hospitalized suffering severe effects of tear gas inhalation after Israeli soldiers fired gas bombs into the lower floor a house in Nabi Saleh village, near the central West Bank city of Ramallah.
Local residents rushed to the house and managed to rescue the wounded women and children after pulling them through the windows of the gassed home.
The incident took place following clashes between dozens of residents of Nabi Saleh and Dir Nitham villages, and invading Israeli soldiers.
Israeli troops fired dozens of gas bombs and used water cannons to shoot dirty, foul smelling water at the residents.
Furthermore, Israeli soldiers released on Friday several residents who were kidnapped by the army during clashes that took place last week in Nabi Saleh and Dir Nitham villages.
The released residents, including two sisters identified as Nariman and Manal Tamimi, were forced to pay high fines.
Several residents were kept under interrogation until further notice.
