ISRAELI occupying forces were accused of killing an unborn Palestinian child in an attack last week after her mother was rushed to hospital following tear gas inhalation.
Misk had not been born at the time seven-month pregnant Areej Abu Alyya was injured at her home in the village of al-Mughayyer, east of Ramallah last week.
She suffered severe bleeding and poisoning after Israeli soldiers fired tear gas and remains in intensive care. Misk’s heart stopped beating last Thursday, doctors said.
Her husband Iyad Abu Alyya said that they lived in a volatile area and that more than 100 tear gas canisters fall near the house every week.
Israeli forces fire barrages of tear gas canisters at the houses in village, forcing many residents to leave their homes even late at night.
“We will be deep asleep when we are suddenly awoken by the sound of a tear gas grenade coming through the windows of the house,” Mr Alyya said today.
He is forced to wake his eight children and get them out of the house, often not returning until the next morning.
“Every week I take my children to the village doctor, all of them with severe symptoms as a result of inhaling tear gas and suffering from a burn in the lungs, which causes them permanent vomiting, chest pain and severe cough.
“It seems that the gas fired by the occupation forces is a new and toxic type,” he added
Ms Alyya remains in a serious condition and has been operated on twice. Her home is just metres away from the spot where 13-year-old Ali Abu Aliya was shot dead by Israeli soldiers last month.
