Israeli soldiers attacked, Friday, dozens of Palestinians at the northern entrance of Azzoun town, east of the northern West Bank city of Qalqilia, during the funeral procession of a Palestinian Lieutenant, identified as Tareq Badwan, 24, who was shot dead by Israeli army fire at a police headquarters in Jenin, also northern West Bank.

The soldiers closed the main entrance of Azzoun town, and resorted to the excessive use of force against the marchers, by firing a barrage of gas bombs, concussion grenades, and rubber-coated steel bullets.

The attack led to several injuries, in addition to causing dozens of Palestinians to suffer the effects of teargas inhalation.

In addition, the soldiers abducted two Palestinians, identified as Mustafa Husam Hantash, 16, at the northern entrance of Qalqilia, in addition to Yousef Abu ar-Rob, 23, while returning to the city of Ramallah.
