At least three Palestinians were injured, on Saturday, by Israeli forces as troops invaded the northern West Bank village of Kufur Qaddoum, local sources reported.

Morad Eshteiwi, coordinator of the popular resistance in Kufur Qaddoum, told Palestinian WAFA News Agency that the Israeli army stormed the village, provoking resistance from local Palestinians. Occupation forces fired live rounds at the protesters, injuring three of them. Israeli troops also fired tear-gas towards protestors, causing many others to choke.

According to local sources, Israeli forces suppressed the weekly demonstration, held every Friday in Kufur Qaddoum village in the Qalqilia district.

Morad Eshteiwi, a local activist, told the Palestinian Information Center that the soldiers and attacked peaceful demonstrators with live rounds, rubber-coated metal bullets, tear-gas canisters and stun grenades, causing some to suffer inhalation injuries, and were treated at the scene.

Since 2002, the citizens of Kufur Qaddoum have been staging weekly demonstrations in an expression of their opposition to Israeli settlements, the annexation wall, and the closure of the main road leading east to Nablus City.
