An Israeli and an American journalist have been hospitalized after taking drugs in an omen ceremony in the occupied West Bank city of Jenin, the Israeli foreign ministry said.
The journalist, who is a journalist with Al Jazeera, suffered cardiac arrest, the ministry said in a statement on Saturday.
The journalist’s condition was stable, it added.
Israeli forces used tear gas and rubber bullets on the protesters who refused to leave after their ceremony.
They chanted “Israel, Israel,” and Israeli soldiers fired rubber bullets and tear gas at the demonstrators, according to local media reports.
The Palestinians in Jenin have called for the occupation of the West Bank and the Israeli government to halt the occupation, which began in 1967, and end the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
Israel has the final say in the region’s borders, which Palestinians want for a future state in the West.
In the past two years, at least 17 Israelis and one American have been killed by Palestinian gunfire, while more than 400 Palestinians have been injured, including nearly 200 by live fire, according the Palestinian Center for Human Rights.
