Dozens of Palestinians, accompanied by international peace activists, held the weekly protest, Friday, in Kufur Qaddoum town, in the northern West Bank district of Qalqilia, demanding access to their own lands, and the reopening of the town’s main road that the army closed 14 years ago.

Morad Eshteiwy, the media coordinator of the Popular Committee in Kufur Qaddoum, said the weekly procession started after Friday prayers at the town’s mosque, where dozens of locals, and many international peace activists, marched while chanting against the ongoing Israeli occupation, and Israel’s apartheid policies.

The soldiers did not invade the town this week, and there have been no reports of abductions or injuries.
