Israeli soldiers injured, Friday, dozens of Palestinians during the weekly procession in Kufur Qaddoum town, east of the northern West Bank city of Qalqilia.

Morad Eshteiwi, the media coordinator of the Popular Committee against the Annexation Wall & Colonies in Qalqilia, said the soldiers invaded Kufur Qaddoum immediately after the procession started.

Several Palestinians then burnt tires and hurled stones at the invading army vehicles.

He added that the soldiers fired a barrage of gas bombs and concussion grenades, in addition to rubber-coated steel bullets.

Dozens of protesters suffered the effects of tear gas inhalation, in addition to cuts and bruises.

The Palestinians have been holding weekly processions for the last eighteen years, demanding the army to reopen the village’s main road which was blockaded to allow easy access to the illegal colonizers, driving to and from Kedumim illegal colony, which was built on stolen Palestinian lands.
