Israeli soldiers attacked, Friday, the weekly procession in Kufur Qaddoum town, east of the northern West Bank city of Qalqilia, causing many injuries.

The Popular Committee against the Annexation Wall and Colonies in Kufur Qaddoum, said the Palestinians, accompanied by international and Israeli peace activists, marched from the center of the village while chanting against the ongoing illegal Israeli occupation of Palestine, its colonies and escalating violation.

They also chanted against the so-called “Deal of the Century,” which strips the Palestinians of their fundamental rights of sovereignty, independence, and self-determination, in addition to ignoring all related United Nations and Security Council resolutions.

The Popular Committee stated that the soldiers fired rubber-coated steel bullets, gas bombs, and concussion grenades, in addition to sponge-tipped bullets.

Several Palestinians suffered the effects of teargas inhalation and received the needed treatment.

Kufur Qaddoum witnesses frequent Israeli invasions, assaults and abductions as it continues to hold its weekly nonviolent processions against the illegal Annexation Wall and colonies, and against the closure of the main road, which was blockaded by the military fifteen years ago, to enable easy access for colonialist settlers driving to and from the Kedumim colony, built on private Palestinian lands.
