On Friday, Israeli soldiers attacked the weekly procession in Kufur Qaddoum town, east of the northern West Bank city of Qalqilia, wounding at least six Palestinians.

Media sources said the Palestinians marched from the center of the village, carrying Palestinian flags and chanting for ongoing resistance until liberation and independence.

They added that the soldiers attacked the protesters with rubber-coated steel bullets, gas bombs, and concussion grenades, causing at least six Palestinians to suffer the effects of tear gas inhalation.

Some of the injured were treated at the scene while others were moved to hospital for further medical attention.

Many Palestinian youngsters hurled stones at the soldiers who invaded their town and attacked the procession.

The Palestinians hold weekly processions every Friday and Saturday in Kufur Qaddoum, demanding the army to reopen the town’s main entrance, blockaded 19 years ago to allow easy access to illegal colonizers driving to and from Kedumim colony, built on stolen Palestinian lands.
