Palestinian Legislative Council official Mustafa Barghouti on Saturday called on the international community to pressure Israel to stop using tear gas as a means to disperse demonstrations.

Barghouti's comments came after Palestinians claimed Jawaher Abu Rahma died as a result of tear gas she inhaled while at the weekly protest against the security barrier in Bilin on Friday.

Barghouti also called on Palestinians "to document these incidents and these crimes so we can prosecute Israel in international court."
