On Friday, Israeli soldiers injured many Palestinians, including children, during the weekly procession in Kufur Qaddoum, east of the northern West Bank city of Qalqilia.

The Palestinians marched in the town while chanting for ongoing resistance against the illegal Israeli occupation and its colonies and calling for national unity.

They also chanted against the serious Israeli escalation across occupied Palestine, especially the daily assaults against the Palestinians in Al-Aqsa in occupied Jerusalem.

Morad Eshteiwi, the media spokesperson of the Fateh Movement in Qalqilia, said dozens of soldiers invaded the town and attacked the procession.

He added that the army fired many rubber-coated steel bullets, gas bombs, and concussion grenades at the Palestinians and surrounding homes.

Medical sources have confirmed that the soldiers shot four young men with rubber-coated steel bullets in the lower extremities.

They added that dozens of Palestinians, including many in their homes, suffered the effects of tear gas inhalation.

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.
