On Friday, Israeli soldiers attacked the weekly procession in Kufur Qaddoum, east of the northern West Bank city of Qalqilia, and shot three Palestinians.

Morad Eshteiwi, the media spokesperson of the Popular Committee in Qalqilia, said the Palestinians marched from the center of the town, chanting against the serious Israeli escalation and calling for liberation and independence.

He added that the soldiers immediately attacked the procession and shot three Palestinians with rubber-coated steel bullets.

The Palestinians also condemned the killing of two Palestinians, including a doctor, who the soldiers shot earlier Friday, in Jenin, in the northern West Bank.

The Palestinians have been holding weekly processions in Kufur Qaddoum for the last eighteen years, demanding the army to reopen the village’s main road the soldiers blockaded to allow easy access to the illegal colonizers driving to and from Kedumim illegal colony built on stolen Palestinian lands.
