Israeli soldiers invaded, Friday, the town of Kufur Qaddoum, in the northern West Bank district if Qalqilia, and assaulted the weekly protest, wounding two Palestinians, and causing many others to suffer the effects of tear gas inhalation.

The protest started from the center of Kufur Qaddoum, in participation with many Israeli and international solidarity activists.

Morad Eshteiwy, the media coordinator of the Popular Committee in Kufur Qaddoum, said the soldiers used excessive force against the protesters, and fired rubber-coated steel bullets and gas bombs.

Eshteiwy added that a young man was shot with a gas bomb in his head, and suffered a moderate injury, before Palestinian medics moved him to Rafidia hospital, near Nablus.
