Israeli soldiers attacked, Friday, the weekly procession in Kufur Qaddoum town, east of the northern West Bank city of Qalqilia, and shot three Palestinians.

The Popular Committee against the Annexation Wall and Colonies in Kufur Qaddoum said the soldiers tried to ambush the Palestinians by hiding in an under-construction home to use it as a firing post, but the protesters uncovered their hideout, and started throwing stones at them.

It added that, after the hideout was discovered, many army jeeps invaded the town, and the soldiers started firing dozens of live rounds, rubber-coated steel bullets and gas bombs at the protesters.

Medical sources said three young men were shot and mildly injured, before receiving the needed treatment by filed medics of the Palestinian Red Crescent Society.

The Popular Committee in Kufur Qaddoum said the escalating Israeli violation will only lead to further determination and steadfastness among the Palestinians who are ongoing with their processions, rejecting this illegal occupation, its colonies and polices targeting them, their homes and lands.

It added that the army has recently escalated its invasions into the town, and carried out violent searches of homes, in addition to abducting many Palestinians, in an attempt to stop the processions, but affirmed that the Palestinians will continue their struggle to achieve their legitimate rights.

Kufur Qaddoum witnesses frequent Israeli invasions, assaults and abductions as it continues to hold is 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.
