An 18-month-old Palestinian baby has died after suffering from tear gas inhalation during clashes between Israeli forces and Palestinians nearly three months ago, according to Palestinian health officials.

Abdul Rahman Barghouti died late on Friday from asphyxiation, following more than two months of treatment, Palestinian Ministry of Health spokesman Osama Najjar told Al Jazeera. Najjar said that Barghouti was hospitalised after Israeli forces "shot tear gas into his home and room" in the occupied West Bank town of Aboud near Ramallah on May 19.

According to Palestinian news agency Wafa, clashes between Israeli forces and Palestinians took place during a protest in support of Palestinian prisoners who were on hunger strike at the time.
