Israeli soldiers assaulted, Friday, the weekly protest in Kufur Qaddoum town, near the northern West Bank city of Qalqilia, wounding three Palestinians with rubber-coated steel bullets and causing dozens to suffer the effects of teargas inhalation.

Morad Eshteiwy, the media coordinator of the Popular Committee in Kufur Qaddoum, said a large military force invaded Kufur Qaddoum and assaulted locals, holding the weekly nonviolent protest, leading to clashes.

The army fired rubber-coated steel bullets, wounding three Palestinians, and many gas bombs, causing dozens to suffer the effects of teargas inhalation.

Eshteiwy added that the soldiers deliberately destroyed the main waterline, for the seventh consecutive time.

Maintenance workers of the Local Council in Kufur Qaddoum were prevented from fixing the waterline for three hours.

Kufur Qaddoum started the weekly protests thirteen years ago, marching against the army’s closure of the town’s main road to enable easy access to the colonists driving to and from Kedumim illegal colony.
