Many children were treated at the scene for tear-gas inhalation, reportedMa’an News Agency.
One day earlier, Israeli forces inHebronfired up to 15 tear gas canisters and five stun grenades at small children as they made their way to school Tuesday morning.
Video of the attack — recorded and posted to YouTube by the International Solidarity Movement (ISM) — shows frightened schoolchildren, who look to be as young as five years old, running for cover with hands over their ears as Israeli soldiers weave in between buildings with rifles out, blanketing the children with suffocating plumes of tear gas smoke.
It was narrated that Abū Umāmah said: The Messenger of Allāh ﷺ said:
“Whoever recites Āyat al-Kursī immediately after each prescribed prayer, there will be nothing standing between him and his entering Paradise except death.”
