On Friday, Israeli soldiers attacked the weekly procession in Kufur Qaddoum, east of Qalqilia in the northwestern West Bank, and injured many Palestinians.

Media sources said the Palestinians marched from the center of the town, carrying Palestinian flags and chanting against the serious escalation by the Israeli army and the paramilitary colonizers in the West Bank.

They added that the protesters called for continued popular struggle until liberty and independence despite the Israeli escalation against the Palestinians, their homes, lands, and their holy sites.

The soldiers fired many rubber-coated steel bullets, gas bombs, and concussion grenades at the protesters and tried to ambush and abduct some of them.

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

Many youngsters burnt tires and hurled stones at the soldiers who invaded the town and attacked the procession.

Last week, the soldier shot three Palestinians and caused dozens to suffer the effects of tear gas inhalation during the weekly procession in Kufur Qaddoum.

The Palestinians hold weekly processions 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 Palestinians.
