On Friday, Israeli soldiers injured eight Palestinians during the weekly procession in Kufur Qaddoum village, east of Qalqilia, in the northern part of the occupied West Bank.

Media sources said dozens of Palestinians marched in Kufur Qaddoum, carrying Palestinian flags and chanting for ongoing resistance until liberation and independence.

They added that the soldiers shot eight Palestinians with rubber-coated steel bullets and caused dozens to suffer the effects of tear gas inhalation.

Medics provided the needed treatment to all wounded Palestinians without needing further treatment or hospitalization.

The soldiers also ambushed and tried to abduct some of the Palestinian protesters. Many youngsters also bought ties and hurled stones at the soldiers to prevent them from advancing into their neighborhoods.

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.
