Israeli occupation forces raided on Wednesday the occupied West Bank city of Qalqilya, firing massive amounts of tear gas that killed an 85-year-old Palestinian man, medical sources said.

The sources reported that the Israeli occupation forces fired several tear gas canisters directly into Palestinian houses throughout the city. People then called for Palestinian paramedics to take the elderly Said Jasser Ali to the Al-Arabi Hospital in Nablus.

However, a few minutes after arriving at the hospital, Jasser Ali was pronounced dead.
