A Palestinian woman died in hospital after inhaling tear gas used by the Israeli army to disperse protesters near the West Bank city of Bethlehem, a medical official said Tuesday.
But the military denied tear gas was the cause of death.
Late on Monday the army "fired tear gas near the home of the woman, who was suffering from health problems," the medical official told AFP.
The woman, in her 40s, "died after arriving at hospital," the official said.
