On Saturday, a Palestinian child was injured after an Israeli soldier shot him when the army invaded Kufur Qaddoum town, east of Qalqilia, in the northern part of the occupied West Bank.

Media sources said several army vehicles invaded Kufur Qaddoum, leading to protests before the soldiers fired live rounds, rubber-coated steel bullets, gas bombs, and concussion grenades.

They added that the soldiers shot a child, only twelve years of age, with a rubber-coated steel bullet in the neck, and caused many Palestinian to suffer the effects of tear gas inhalation.

Medics treated the wounded Palestinians and rushed the child to Rafidia Hospital in Nablus.

On Friday, Israeli soldiers injured five Palestinians during the weekly procession against Israel’s illegal colonies in Kufur Qaddoum.

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 Palestinians.
