On Friday, Israeli soldiers shot four Palestinians with rubber-coated steel bullets during the weekly procession in Kufur Qaddoum town, east of the northern West Bank city of Qalqilia.

The Palestinians marched from the center of the town while chanting against the ongoing illegal occupation, its colonies, and escalating violations.

Media sources said the soldiers fired many rubber-coated steel bullets at the protesters, wounding four and causing many to suffer the effects of tear gas inhalation.

The soldiers also chased and tried to ambush several protesters but were unable to abduct any.

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.
