In pictures: Abu Sneineh family gets injured with burns and suffocation
The 67-year old Nu’man Abu Sneineh and his 40-year old son Mazen and his wife suffocated on Thursday night after inhaling pepper gas. They were all transferred to Al-Maqased hospital in Al-Tur for treatment. Witnesses said that the Israeli police raided on Thursday the house of Nu’man Abu Sneineh in the neighborhood of Ein Al-Lozeh in Silwan claiming that a young man threw stones at them and then hid in their house. The family denied the matter and verbal altercations broke out which quickly escalated to clashes using hands and the police then sprayed the family members with pepper gas and injured them. Witnesses added that the residents of the neighborhood transferred the three family members to receive treatment in a medical center in their neighborhood and they were then transferred to Al-Maqased hospital.
