Israeli soldiers attacked, Friday, the weekly procession against the Annexation Wall and colonies in Kufur Qaddoum town, east of the northern West Bank city of Qalqilia, shot three young men, and caused dozens of Palestinians to suffer the effects of teargas inhalation.

Morad Eshteiwi, the media coordinator of the Popular Committee against the Wall and colonies in Kufur Qaddoum, said the soldiers attacked the nonviolent protesters with live rounds, rubber-coated steel bullets and gas bombs.

He added that the soldiers shot two young men with rubber-coated steel bullets, and caused cuts and bruises to one child, while dozens of residents suffered the effects of teargas inhalation.

Kufur Qaddoum holds ongoing weekly processions against the illegal Annexation Wall and Colonies, and demanding the army to reopen the town’s main road, which was blockaded fifteen years ago, to enable easy access for colonialist settlers driving to and from Kedumim colony, which was built on private Palestinian lands.
