Israeli soldiers attacked, Friday, the weekly nonviolent protest against the Annexation Wall and Settlements, in Kufur Qaddoum town, near the northern West Bank city of Qalqilia, wounding two Palestinians.Media spokesperson on the Popular Committee in Kufur Qaddoum Morad Eshteiwy said a number of soldiers hid behind olive trees, and ambushed the marchers, before firing several live rounds.

He added that two Palestinians were shot in their legs, suffering mild-to-moderate wounds, and were moved to hospital.

The attack led to clashes between the soldiers and dozens of local youths; the soldiers fired many gas bombs, and live rounds.

The Palestinians in Kufur Qaddoum hold weekly protests against Israel’s illegal Annexation Wall and settlements, and also against the closure of the town’s main road that the army closed more than 13 years ago, to allow colonialist settlers easy access to Kedumim colony, built on Palestinian lands.
