Israel: Two workers killed, one injured in central Israel fire


By Chris Carlson
International Middle East Media Center: In a fire which broke out in central Israel, on Tuesday, two Palestinian workers have died while another has been injured after jumping to safety, according to medical sources. A Palestinian teenager was also injured on Tuesday, during clashes which broke out in Yatta.

Medics told Ma’an that two men, both from the West Bank city of Nablus, were killed in a fire which started in a banquet hall, in Beit Nehemia.
Another worker was injured after he jumped from the second floor of the building, upon which he was taken to Assaf Harofeh medical center, in Petah Tikva.

Earlier a young Palestinian was hit by a high-velocity tear gas canister during clashes with Israeli troops in the southern West Bank town of Yatta, according to a local official.

Spokesman for the Yatta municipality, Abd al-Aziz Abu Fanar, told Ma’an that Tamir Raed Abu Sabha was taken to a nearby hospital after being hit by the canister.

According to Fanar, the clashes took place near NGO offices and the office of the Yatta municipality, where Israeli soldiers bombarded the area with tear gas and stun grenades, which caused a state of alarm among the residents.

A spokesman for the Israeli military said that a “violent riot” ensued in the area following an arrest raid, and that the tear gas and stun grenades came as a means of dispersal.
