Israeli soldiers injured, Friday, six Palestinians during the weekly procession against the illegal Annexation Wall and colonies in Kufur Qaddoum, east of Qalqilia, in the northern part of the occupied West Bank.
Morad Eshteiwi, the media spokesperson of the Popular Committee against the Wall & Colonies in Kufur Qaddoum, said the Palestinians marched from the center of the village, carrying Palestinian flags and chanting for liberation.
He added that the protesters also carried posters of Nasser Abu Hmeid, a Palestinian political prisoner held by Israel and is facing imminent death and called for his release.
It is worth mentioning that, on January 5th, 2021, the Palestinian Prisoners’ Society (PPS) said the detainee is in a coma.
During the procession in Kufur Qaddoum, the soldiers fired many rubber-coated steel bullets, causing six injuries, while several Palestinians also suffered the effects of tear gas inhalation.
The Palestinians have been holding weekly processions for the last eighteen years, demanding the army to reopen the village’s main road which was blockaded to allow easy access to the illegal colonizers, driving to and from Kedumim illegal colony, which was built on stolen Palestinian lands.
