Medical sources have reported, Friday, that Israeli soldiers attacked the weekly nonviolent protest in Kafr Qaddoum village, east of the northern West Bank city of Qalqilia, wounding a child with a rubber-coated steel bullet.
Morad Eshteiwy, media coordinator of the Popular Committee in Kafr Qaddoum, said the soldiers used excessive force against the protesters, and fired gas bombs, concussion grenades and rubber-coated metal bullets.
He added that one child, 15 years of age, was shot in his left arm, and received the needed treatment by Red Crescent medics. Many Palestinians suffered the effects of tear gas inhalation.
Local youths managed to uncover an ambush by the soldiers, who hid in an abandon farm in an attempt to kidnap protesters, leading to clashes between the army and youngsters in the town.
Also on Friday, the soldiers attacked the weekly nonviolent protest against the Annexation Wall and colonies, in Bil’in village near Ramallah, causing dozens to suffer the effects of tear gas inhalation.
