Several Israeli army jeeps invaded, overnight until early morning hours Thursday, Kufur Qaddoum town, east of the northern West Bank city of Qalqilia, and caused many Palestinians to suffer the effects of teargas inhalation during ensuing protests.

Morad Eshteiwi, the media coordinator of the Popular Committee against the Annexation Wall and colonies in Kufur Qaddoum, said the soldiers invaded his home and removed a Palestinian flag, hanging on its rooftop.

He added that many youngsters protested the invasion, while the soldiers extensively fired gas bombs, concussion grenades and rubber-coated steel bullets, causing many Palestinians to suffer the effects of teargas inhalation.

Kufur Qaddoum witnesses frequent Israeli invasions, assaults and abductions as it continues to hold its weekly nonviolent processions against the illegal Annexation Wall and colonies, and against the closure of the main road, which was blockaded by the military fifteen years ago, to enable easy access for colonialist settlers driving to and from the Kedumim colony, built on private Palestinian lands.
