Two Palestinians were injured on Friday as Israeli forces attacked dozens of protesters taking part in the weekly anti-settlements protest in the village of Kufur Qaddoum, near Qalqilia in the central occupied West Bank, said Mourad Shtewi, coordinator of the popular resistance in the village.

An Israeli army bulldozer was filmed pushing large rocks towards the protesters in the village, injuring a Palestinian child, identified as Mo’men Shtewi, 9, who was treated at the scene.

Photojournalist for Palestine TV, Mohammad Enaya, 28, was also injured during the attack, and was transferred to nearby Darwish Nazzal hospital for treatment, where his condition was described as moderate, according to the Palestinian News Info Agency (WAFA).

Israeli soldiers also shot at the protesters with rubber-coated steal rounds and tear-gas canisters to force them to leave the area, causing many cases of suffocation from toxic tear-gas inhalation.
