Israeli soldiers attacked, Friday, the weekly protest in Kufur Qaddoum, near the northern West Bank city of Qalqilia, and fired rubber-coated steel bullets and gas bombs.

Morad Eshteiwy, the media coordinator of the Popular Committee against the Annexation Wall and Colonies in Kufur Qaddoum, said the soldiers fired many gas bombs, and rubber-coated steel bullets at the nonviolent protesters. He added that the Israeli attack did not lead to injuries or any arrests.

For the past fourteen years, Kufur Qaddoum residents have been protesting, demanding the army to reopen the main town’s road, which was blockaded to enable easy access to the illegal colonist Israeli settlers, driving to and from Kedumim colony, built on privately-owned Palestinian lands.
