Israeli soldiers attacked, Friday, dozens of protesters in Kufur Qaddoum town, in the northern West Bank district of Qalqilia, as dozens marched during the weekly procession against the illegal Annexation Wall and colonies, and the continued closure of the town’s main road for the 14th consecutive year.

The protestors marched while waving Palestinian flags and carrying posters of late Palestinian President Yasser Arafat, commemorating the twelfth anniversary of his death, before the soldiers assaulted the procession, leading to clashes.

Many youngsters burnt tires, hurled stones and empty bottles on the invading forces, while the soldiers fired live rounds, rubber-coated steel bullets and gas bombs, causing scores of residents to suffer the sever effects of tear has inhalation.

Kufur Qaddoum holds weekly processions against Israeli’s illegal colonies, and the Annexation Wall, in addition to protesting the ongoing closure of its main road, for the fourteenth consecutive year, to enable easy access to colonists driving to and from Kedumim colony, illegally built on Palestinian lands.
