On Friday, Israeli soldiers attacked the weekly procession in Kufur Qaddoum, east of Qalqilia, in the occupied West Bank’s northwestern part.

The Palestinians marched from the center of the town carrying Palestinian flags and chanting for ongoing resistance until liberation and independence.

Israeli soldiers attacked the protesters with gas bombs, concussion grenades, and rubber-coated steel bullets.

Medical sources said the soldiers shot three Palestinians with rubber-coated steel bullets and caused dozens to suffer the effects of tear gas inhalation.

Last Saturday, Israeli soldiers shot two Palestinians and caused many Palestinians to suffer the effects of tear gas inhalation in Kufur Qaddoum.

Last Friday, the soldiers attacked the weekly anti-settlement march in the village of Kufur Qaddoum,  injuring dozens of Palestinians.

The Palestinians hold weekly processions in Kufur Qaddoum, since 2003, 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 Palestinians.

Israeli colonists from the nearby illegal “Kedumin” settlement, established on expropriated Palestinian lands, have full access to the street, while Palestinians are forced to take longer routes to Nablus city, the nearest major commercial center, causing undue hardship.
