Israeli soldiers shot, on Thursday evening, two Palestinians and destroyed the main water pipeline in Kufur Qaddoum, east of the northern West Bank city of Qalqilia.

Local sources said several army jeeps invaded the village, leading to protests before the soldiers fired live rounds, rubber-coated steel bullets, and gas bombs at the protesters and nearby homes.

They added that two Palestinians were shot with rubber-coated steel bullets and received the needed treatment, adding that several Palestinians suffered the effects of tear gas inhalation.

During the invasion, the soldiers destroyed a main water line in Kufur Qaddoum, in addition to closing two streets with rocks and sandhills.

It is worth mentioning that Kufur Qaddoum is subject to constant Israeli invasions and violations due to ongoing protests against the illegal colonialist policies and the annexation of the Palestinian lands.

In 2003, the Israeli occupation authorities closed the main road of the town to local Palestinians and granted full access to the illegal colonial settlers, especially those living in the Kedumim colony which was built on stolen Palestinian lands.

In related news, the soldiers installed two roadblocks in Rommana village, and the main entrance of Silat al-Harithiya, near the northern West Bank city of Jenin, leading to protests.

The soldiers stopped and searched dozens of cars and interrogated many Palestinians while inspecting their ID cards. Dozens of soldiers were also deployed around many villages and towns in the Jenin governorate.
